[maildirpp] Improve compatibility a month ago

From Clément DOUIN to ~kmaasrud/inbox

Hey Magnus,

I hope you are doing well! I wanted to share with you an issue I am
facing with the maildirpp crate. Here the thing:

- The Maildir standard does not provide anything about folders
  hierarchy. One Maildir targets one mailbox. The way to structure
  folders is up to the client. Let's say someone uses the mail
  synchronizer [mbsync]. The Maildir folder hierarchy is specific to
  mbsync: name of the inbox folder, nested vs flatten folders, folder
  name encoding/decoding of special characters etc. If someone wants to
  migrate from mbsync to [OfflineIMAP], it will probably not work.

- The Maildir++ standard restricts a bit more the hierarchy, as every

When a client is in watch mode (IDLE for IMAP), then it cannot do
anything else. So you definitely need a different client for watching
and for the rest.

Re: [PATCH] allow using only ASCII characters a month ago

Thank you for your patch and sorry for the delay.

In my opinion it should not be a global CLI option, but rather a config
option that users could customize. Could be even better to let users
customize the character they want to display, per flag. But it would
require more work to achieve this. Let's reuse the issue you
accidentally opened:

The branch is too unstable for now, I have issues with the new IMAP
lib. Better to wait for next release. Sorry for the inconvenience!
