Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 147780
Some IMAP folders not accessible
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:00 EST
Evolution pollutes the IMAP server's namespace with its own 'Junk' and 'Trash'
folders, and prevents access to _real_ folders with those names. These are not
IMAP folders, and shouldn't be displayed in the IMAP heirarchy. They should
probably be shown in the vFolders tree instead, or somewhere entirely separate
from the IMAP namespace.
It's not acceptable to prevent access to _real_ folders on the IMAP server.
Ideally, it would be possible for the user to completely remove these.
Personally I can handle it, but for my father I have to rebuild Evolution
without 'Junk' support in order to prevent it from confusing him.

patch to make the namespace abuse optional
I'm still having to build my own evo-data-server rpms to fix this bug.
I've filed this upstream here:
I'm going to resolve this as UPSTREAM; I want to minimize the Fedora package's
delta from upstream here.
