Imap supports system flags and keyword flags. System flags (\Seen,
\Deleted, etc.) are defined by the IMAP specification and always begin
with a \. 

Keyword flags are server-specific. Some servers allow the client to
define new keyword flags, but it is not a requirement for a server.
See section 2.3.2 of RFC 3501.
