Default

Can someone give me some ideas on which program is responsible for creating the default folders? I get the impression that when a new email account is created that the send and trash folders are not created at this time - it is left to the first imap client that logs in to do this (eg Squirrelmail or Outlook etc) - is this correct? Are these folders created regardless of whether it is the first time that the account has been logged into?

My maillog has the following in it when I try to log in:
Dec 26 20:04:20 uksys01 imapd: Connection, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1]
Dec 26 20:04:20 uksys01 authdaemond: received auth request, service=imap, authtype=login
Dec 26 20:04:20 uksys01 authdaemond: authuserdb: trying this module

Dec 26 20:04:20 uksys01 imapd: LOGIN, user=thereidsonline.com_test7, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1], protocol=IMAP
Dec 26 20:04:20 uksys01 imapd: LOGOUT, user=thereidsonline.com_test7, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1], headers=0, body=0, rcvd=113, sent=261, time=0, starttls=1
Note: I've tried to implement the mod that allows me to log in using user@domain
Is it somehow possible that although courier imap is authenticating my email login successfuly that in reality it does not have access to the Maildir folder, and that as a result it cannot access the "Inbox"? (though I would have expected to see an error in the log if this were the case).

Thanks for your help,
James.
