I should mention that even though RHEL (Fedora/CentOS/SL/etc.) uses the
invoca.ch packages but they are older and never have the 'autocreate'

I heavily recommend that you get the SRPM from invoca.ch directly (Simon
- who I believe monitors this list) and rebuild (dead simple)


The 'autocreate' patches are awesome. Here is info on what they do (and
the patch code itself).


but if you use Simon's packages, the autocreate patch is already
included (no fuss, no muss).

Autocreate INBOX and subfolders on first LOGIN, first POST, auto 'sieve'
rules and auto subscribe to various folders including 'shared' or
'public' folders
