I guess kmail does not have an internal cache that stores additional
data on the folder. It just reads everything it needs from the folder
itself (name, ownership, permission and type). Horde does not need
more information from these folders but since the data is cached in
the data tree, there needs to be a connection between the folder and
the stored data. This is currently a unique id that is stored as
additional folder data. Admin access is needed in case this unique id
needs to be stored on globally shared folders.
