Hi,

We tried to configure uw-imap to create new folder in mbx format by default.

We put some config files on the server like:

/etc/c-client.cf
I accept the risk
set new-folder-format mbx
set empty-folder-format mbx

/home/.imaprc
I accept the risk
set new-folder-format mbx
set empty-folder-format mbx

No results after a restart of the imap server.

Somebody have an idea how to do that ?

Thanks.

Go on, have a guess
I don't really understand what you're trying to achieve. The cpimap that cPanel uses is a custom build to uw-imap which by default uses mbox format. You cannot change the way uw-imap works without modifications to exim. If you want maildir support instead of mbox then you should convert over to courier-imap.
