I looked into this briefly. I found this, like mutt, to be very
cumbersome with a framework where you have a large number of IMAP folders.
The problem is that when you operate on IMAP folders (e.g., you decide
you need to see/subscribe one that you haven't been subscribed to), it's
a very cumbersome process. You need to close your MUA and then start
hacking offlineimap or fetchmail config files.
This feels very clunky compared to a modern program that interactively
manages folder subscription/unsubscription/move/etc. At least to me
"folder management" doesn't seem like a task that should be outside the
coverage of the MUA and in the land of UNIX config scripts and editors.
