    Hi there,

    I moved from host (from directadmin to cpanel).
    In both cases i using roundcube as email.

    Only in the new situation (with cpanel) i can't delete or sign off from the maps "drafts" and "trash".
    I don't use them en won't use them.
    I don't selected it by special maps.
    When i delete it it wil be deleted but the system creates the maps again.

    Is there anyway to turn them off?

    Greets Kees.

    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:

    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:

    Submit a Feature Request

    Thank you.
