You still need to give the "-" character for doveadm-server too. Giving
"8" without the "-" works the same in doveadm command line: it'll list
mailboxes matching pattern "8". It makes more sense if you give e.g.
"mailbox list foo*" which lists all mailboxes beginning with "foo".

And anyway, -8 is the default, so it's not necessary to give it.

I think you can give "" as the <folder dest>?
