    id'like to use hierarchical directories in dovecot as described lower. Which can allow me use dots in foldernames, which i always wanted.
    But i assume ISPC3 maildir plugin and maybe others will crash then ???

    I don't have any testing server at the moment

    Directory layout

    By default Dovecot uses Maildir++ directory layout. This means that all mailboxes are stored in a single directory and prefixed with a dot. For example:

    * Maildir/.folder
    * Maildir/.folder.subfolder

    If you want maildirs to use hierarchical directories, such as:

    * Maildir/folder/
    * Maildir/folder/subfolder/

    you'll need to enable fs layout:

    # v1.1+ only:
    mail_location = maildir:~/Maildir:LAYOUT=fs
