Normally, when you just configure Toltec connector, you are only able to 
use folders like Calendar, Notes, Tasks etc.

Your mail folders (Incoming etc.) will be empty, unless you configure 
email additionally.

If you configure your mail as POP3 mail, it will be stored as you 
described (in folders that can be synchronized by Toltec Connector/Kolab).

If you configure your mail as IMAP mail, it will be stored in separate 
IMAP folders (not touched by Toltec connector).

Correct me if I'm wrong.
