seems to be a php serialization ? isnt it ?
where is the value for the uid?
could be 1 0

the default fot INBOX Could be yes by defaut and if we have the sid  
with 0 for a folder we doesn t sync it
and the inverse for shared and user namespace
in that way
with nothing in annotation the device has just INBOX FOLDERs , like  
that without any setting the user would have their things on the device
and if he would have specials things like shared or other he could set

not ok with that , it is improbable , impossible that the same user  
has 2 mobiles with the same serial number.
other think , i get the serial number of the device if we add a part  
in the serial number how the bakend could know witch device it is ????
