It worked for me, when I changed from Courier to Dovecot and they used a
different default namespace

Sort of.  I'd really appreciate it if somebody could clarify it for me
though :-)

aiui, you can access regular folders without a prefix, and MH folders (can't
remember what creates them but they're not mbox, not maildir) as #mh/... or

Other users' folders would be ~USER...

I'm confused by the fact that some of the prefixes are terminated with a /
and some with a .
