    Hi people,

    When I setup my IMAP email in Outlook 2013 Sent Items, Drafts etc are all sub folders of Inbox.

    How do I change them back to top level folders?

    So basically.

    Now it is:

    - Inbox
    -¬ Sent Items
    -¬ Drafts
    -¬ Folder1
    -¬ Folder2
    -¬ Folder3

    I want this:

    - Inbox
    - Sent Items
    - Drafts
    - Folder1
    - Folder2
    - Folder3

    Cheers.

    Hello,

    I believe you are noticing the intended behavior intended to unify IMAP folder usage between webmail and desktop clients for Dovecot. Dovecot and Courier are now configured to inform mail clients of special IMAP folders such as Trash, Junk, Sent, and Archive. They are configured to automatically create. EX:

    Code:
      mailbox Archive {
        special_use = \Archive
        auto = create
      }
    Thus, it's not possible to remove them (this was discussed in internal case number 161561). I suggest opening a feature request for the ability to delete those folders or modify their location:

    Thank you.
