i know quite some people who don't use INBOX as their primary IMAP
folder, but rather configured their MDA to redirect any unsorted mail to
something like .username. for these people it would be great to be able
to set the INBOX to some custom foldername.

i already opened a ticket about this in the past, but it was set wontfix
and closed. anyway, even when it's not a trivial thing to implement, it
would be useful.
