i do some tests with dovecot 2.1.7 and activated a default special-use
config. To get it work with outlook 2013, i also added XLIST to imap
capability string. basically this is working.
is somebody also using special-use folders successful with outlook 2013? In
my understanding of special-use extension, every client should map its own
local folders to corresponding folders on server. Real Name of folder on
server should be irrelevant, if a folder "aaa" is marked as \Sent, then a
Client should show this folder as "Sent" "Sent Items" or "Gesendete
Objekte", just like local preferences.
Outlook 2013 seems to work slightly different. Outlook 2013 seems to really
use the marked folder on server regardless of local preferences. If i mark
Drafts as \Drafts, outlook 2013 will use this for drafts even in german
environment. Did somebody other notice this behaviour?
Is it possible to adjust some settings in outlook 2013 fo fix this?
Otherwise the serveradmin is forced to provide special-use folders per every
single user and let them choose how his folders should be named? What
experience did others make who use special-use folders in productive
