HI, I'm wondering if it is possible to access multiple maildirs via courier-imap?

My personal setup is like this ~/mail/inbox <- a maildir ~/mail/sent <- a maildir ~/mail/audio_mailinglist <- a maildir.. ~/mail/blah_mailinglist .. ...

I filter mail to the various maildirs using procmail. I also sometimes create and store mail to a new or existing maildir using mutt, and I'd like to be able to access these remotely via IMAP.

Is this possible? How? With my current setup I can only seem to access my inbox.

Courier-IMAP uses its own scheme for multiple maildirs, which are represented as IMAP folders.

Each IMAP folder is MAILDIR/.foldername, which, itself is a maildir.
