Re: So I guess no one really cares about the IMAP folder root.

IMAP allows you to have the same messages in your Inbox, Sent folder and
Drafts wherever you are.  So if I reply to a message at work and then check
my mail when I get home, then its marked R in mutt and a copy of the reply
is in the Sent folder.  Under the same circumstances with POP, it would not
be marked Read and you wouldn't have a copy of the reply.

Sounds trivial until you get used to the continuity.  I tend to bounce from
PC to PC at work so its really useful.  Also great if you follow threads in
a discussion.
