You are now confusing me :
My understanding of "list = yes" was "while you're listing my parent
namespace's content, list my content as well" or. That is, to me, the
"list=yes" totally voids the concept of namespace.
So basically if a client doesn't support NAMESPACE command at all (and
if it hasn't any clue in its conf about what the namespaces are), it has
to rely on list=yes.
Maybe your sentence above means "if a client who plays by the rules (via
NAMESPACE command) and hidden=yes, won't even see the default
But if so, that would be weird that a bad client would be able to list
mailboxes and not a good client ?
Or said in another way, I don't understand why list=yes isn't enough in
anycase to list a namespace content.
