Hi, Sergey.  Thank you for your response.  I would like to clear up, as best
we can, these email problems, and then, by all means, I would like to get back
to the IMAP server questions.  I noted (see headers below) that you responded
to the message that I sent to address@hidden on August 17.  Did you
ever receive the previous, nearly identical, message that I sent to 
address@hidden on August 13?  Please let me know if my emails are getting
through, and which email address you would prefer that I use.  I am also
sending a nearly identical copy of this message to address@hidden to 
insure that at least one of them gets through.

Thank you,

Hi Gary,

It is set in imap4d configuration file, in section "server", like this;

server {
  transcript yes;

I don't quite understand what exactly "graying" means. Is it some way to
represent folder attributes? If so, what attributes?

There are no restrictions on mailbox and directory structure. Any
directory hierarchy is understood.

The `_is_scheme' is a "virtual method" which is defined in the library
responsible for the particular mailbox implementation (e.g. in
libmu_maildir, for mailboxes in maildir format).

No, the "namespace" directive has nothing to do with the mailbox types.
