    Quick question:

    IMAP specifies a modified UTF-7 encoding for mailbox names. I imagine that this might be implemented
    in some applications as a converter. If so, what charset name is used for it? Is there a common one?

    If there is no commonly used charset name, then how about "imap-mailbox-name"?


    See RFC 2060 section 5.1.3. "Mailbox International Naming Convention"
