Default create sent/junk/trash folders for IMAP?

i followed the how-to guide for ISPConfig for Ubuntu 7.04, and used Courier for IMAP. When I create a new mail user, it does not create the sent, junk, or trash folders for the user, only the inbox. I realize the mailuser could create the folders in their mail client, but I guess the issue is that the mail wont' automatically be moved to the appropriate folder.

So I guess my question is two part:

1) How do i manually add the sent/junk/trash folders for my existing mail users?


2) What do I need to modify to the users created in the future have these folders by default.

1) In your mailclient.
2) There is no such builtin function. You will have to extend the ISPConfig scripts for this.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

For example: If you're using a webmail-client like RoundCube, you can define those "default" folders within the configuration file.
