Emm... Well, that might be possible, but I have to use cleartext channels, not 
SSL ones, right?

Well, this made me go through the problem again and I concluded some. Not 
counting the subfolders problem mentioned previously, I guess, the only 
remaining problem there could be that Dovecot still doesn't support UTF-8 on-
disk directory format. Its planned to work for Dovecot2 [1]. Now  for example 
I create "ĀēļšŪ" with KMail, but get "&AQABEwE8AWEBag-" on server. I want my 
system to be maximally universal and robust at its usability, so those UTF-8 
directories are much waited on my side, but thats not about KMail in any 
direct way, right?
