Hello everybody

Apparently, cyrus-imapd does not support mailboxes with some letters
inside the name. "&" is one of that. I have some mailboxes containing
that symbol to be migrated from another server (SUN) but I always get an

Looking at the IMAP RFC it seems very complex to me to understand what

way to make cyrus accept such mailboxes, for example using some sort of
escape sequences, encoding rules or so.


Do someone have a solution to this annoying problem?
