New submission from T. Ribbrock <admin_slox-e at itsef.com>:

It would be nice if an easy to use method was implemented to move complete
folder hierarchies (i.e. folders with subfolders) between an (d)IMAP account and
"Local Folders". Several of our users are missing this feature in the proko2
client, as at times, they want to move a complete folder hierarchy (i.e. a
folder with subfolders) from their (d)IMAP account to their Local Folders in
order to free up space on their IMAP account.

Right now, there does not seem to be any other way to do this other than
re-creating the complete folder hierarchy manually in "Local Folders" and
subsequently moving all messages folder by folder. This is very tedious for
folders with many subfolders.

Having this feature could also aid archiving/backing-up messages, as local
folders are easier to burn to CD, for example.
