    I just did a new ISPConfig install and I've noticed that by default, the email folders (Trash, Spam, Deleted, etc.) are at the same folder level as Inobx. I had always had them under inbox. Is it possible to change that without the config later being wiped out by an upgrade?

    I'm certainly fine with changing the way I'm used to if it's going to cause problems to change the config

    Are you sure they are on the same folder level?

    Yes, they show at the same level. I've just deleted my old dovecot config (I guess I should have said I migrated to ISPConfig) and re-installed via /usr/local/ispconfig/server/scripts/update_stable.sh and am about to test with a new account

    The new account has them all at the same level. If it's not easy to change, I can just adjust the way I do things, it's not a big deal.

    I think it actually makes more sense to have them at the same level, rather than INBOX.Trash, INBOX.Spam, etc.
