Question after switching from courier to dovecot

    I switched from courier to dovecot over the weekend so that I could get the impersonate plugin for Roundcube working, among other things. Everything went smoothly using Till's script.

    The only question I have is really cosmetic I guess. With courier, the special folders like Junk, Trash and sent were under the main list of folders. Now they are underneath Inbox as a parent. This is not a huge deal, but I may want to go into users mailboxes and delete the duplicate old folders to avoid confusion.

    Users don't generally like change.

    Is this a function of dovecot configuration somewhere? I have a small enough number of users that I can just go into each mailbox and clean them up.

    After a little further investigation, it is only existing mailboxes which were modified using the script at http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showpost.php?p=281080&postcount=3
    that exhibit this behavior.

    So for existing boxes, in the maildir /var/vmail/domain.com/user/Maildir/
    it has created
    Code:
    .INBOX.Drafts
    .INBOX.Junk
    .INBOX.Sent
    .INBOX.Trash
    If I create a new mail user, it only does
    Code:
    .Drafts
    .Junk
    .Sent
    .Trash
    How can I modify all the existing mailboxes structures so they resemble a new mailbox?Without deleting and recreating the accounts.
