Hello Timo,

one thing i already discussed with you some time ago that would make
some difference and open lots of possibilities, in my opinion, would be
the ability to have a virtual INBOX that could be composed by a list of
folders. That would make a world of difference to those who maintain a
mixed service of pop and imap to their users.

Just from the top of my head, two great possibilities would be able to

1 - One could use server side filtering (sieve, maildrop, etc) to
separate junk from the INBOX to make things look nice for IMAP users,
but still allow POP users to retrieve their marked messages and not miss
any false positives.

2 - If the list of folders could be a wildcard, allow POP users to
retrieve ALL their messages, even if they're also regular IMAP based
webmail users.

I'm sure other folks would find other ways to use such feature.

Best regards,

Hugo Monteiro.
