[Dovecot] Filter from Outlook fails after migration

I did a list and lsub in the two servers with the same account and the
only difference that we could watch is HasChildren/HasNoChildren in
INBOX and fully differente in LSUB

The namespace is the same, with INBOX prefix.

We compare real folder names in Maildir in couriersubscribed and
suscriptions files.

It's very strange. Maybe Outlook has a incorrect charset.

All the subscribed folder are visible at Outlook.
