comment How to organise Maildir subdirectories
If you are careful with the layout of your mailboxes, IMAP and local access can work together just fine. Dovecot uses the Maildir++ laout, meaning the hierarchy of "folders" and "subfolders" is not based on subdirctories on the filesystem but a flat namespace of "."-separated names, so where that is used I get around it by having a script that creates symbolic links from the local Maildir directory hierarchy to a Maildir++ directory used for IMAP. But in fact I use IMAP that way all the time - mostly I just use the local mailboxes, but at times I access my mail remotely using IMAP.
