a default inbox annotation

as far as I understand the Toltec Connector uses POP3 to obtain the incoming 
mails not directly IMAP. I assume that this is due to the fact that this 
allows to use the MAPI transport provider which then also allows to use the 
ical parser etc.

This leads to some minor problems when working with Kontact and Toltec on the 
same account as the effective inbox is different. 

In some way this leads to confusions with mail status flags (new/read...) and 
to duplicated mail.

I therefore propose the we define _independent_ of the IMAP INBOX a default 
Kolab inbox. The description shall happen using an IMAP annotation like 

Any client is then free to use whatever protocol (pop3s or IMAP) to download 
new messages but the messages then end up in the same folder finally.

What do you think?
