It seems that most people agree that those folder names should work. 
So we need an IMAP server that can deal with them for Kolab.
Thus we actually would need to document this requirement
for the client. Can somebody propose a patch to the current format 

Of course we must fix the current implementation then.
Work is on the way and because this is an implementation issue,
we should continue the implementation communication to kolab-devel at .
