FWICT maildirs have some filename issues (illegal chars in the names) that
Windows chokes on. I can get inboxes to work OK, but e.g. mutt puts ":"'s and
","'s in the filenames it tries to create in your "received" folder. I do have
a build of 1.3.28 that works OK with its *own* inbox maildir. Do you want the
EXE to try out?
