Some IMAP message stores include special-use mailboxes, such as those
used to hold draft messages or sent messages.  Many mail clients
allow users to specify where draft or sent messages should be put,
but configuring them requires that the user know which mailboxes the
server has set aside for these purposes.  This extension adds new
optional mailbox attributes that a server may include in IMAP LIST
command responses to identify special-use mailboxes to the client,
easing configuration.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
