What does 'altnamespace' do after all? I remember I turned it on once
for my server and some weird things happened. so I had to turn it off. 
Does it make imap server to create folder under every user's mailbox
directory even the user wants to create a new folder at the same level
as inbox in his imap client like outlook?

Best Regards,

Thanks again.
