    Some of my users need to use imap with Apple's Mail.app which doesn't seem to work well with courier's folder naming scheme.

    The solution I came across was to create 2 symlinks in every mail account folder like:

    ln -s . INBOX
    ln -s . INBOX.

    and then set the IMAP path prefix to be INBOX in Mail.app.

    This works but I would like a way to have this happen automatically whenever a new email account is created in cPanel. How would I go about doing this? I was thinking there must be a script somewhere that creates the directory, etc. when the account is setup that I could just add those commands to.

    thanks for any help

    "Me Too"

    I would also like to know this.. It would solve the problem I'm working on, in setting up users to have openwebmail folders on account creation. I can't get OWM to do what I need so I'm turning to cPanel to create the folders for me and can't find a good method to do that. This would be perfect...
