Don't know if it's right here as a feature request but I figured out how to configure special folders with umlauts such as "Entwürfe" for "Drafts" and "Gelöscht" for "Trash". I think it's not a feature but you can see the encoding of this foldernames on "Settings" -> "Folders" -> "Rename existing folders". Folders with umlauts are shown in this dropdown encoded and you can use this encoding in your config-file.

For GMX it looks like this:

Code: [Select]
// store draft message is this mailbox                    
// leave blank if draft messages should not be stored              
$rcmail_config['drafts_mbox'] = 'Entw&APw-rfe';                
                                       
// store spam messages in this mailbox                    
$rcmail_config['junk_mbox'] = 'Spamverdacht';                  
                                       
// store sent message is this mailbox                      
// leave blank if sent messages should not be stored              
$rcmail_config['sent_mbox'] = 'Gesendet';                    
                                       
// move messages to this folder when deleting them              
// leave blank if they should be deleted directly                
$rcmail_config['trash_mbox'] = 'Gel&APY-scht';                
                                       
// display these folders separately in the mailbox list            
$rcmail_config['default_imap_folders'] = array('INBOX', 'Gesendet', 'Gel&APY-scht', 'Entw&APw-rfe', 'Spamverdacht', 'Virusverdacht');

by the way - has anybody an idea what this encoding is and how to encode arbitrary strings?
It's neither UTF-8 or ISO-8859-1(5) nor HTML-Entities or URL-Encoding...
