Inexplicable
Inbox -> boojum -> Inbox -> Inbox? Really? (On webmail, it's even more streamlined: Inbox -> Inbox -> Inbox -> Inbox.). I don't know where these things come from. I keep deleting them, and they keep growing back, like the heads of a hydra.

Hmm. Broken IMAP namespace setting somewhere?

seen it! I had a user with about 25 nested INBOXes. No kidding! See ticket 968495.

Mine is growing, each time I delete it and it comes back! I expect it will get up to 25 soon...

The subsidiary inboxes seem kind of insecure, and need to shout "I am INBOX!!" while the true inbox is self-assured enough to stick with only capitalizing the first letter.

In this particular case, I think it was due to using the INBOX.Spamscreen folder as a folder to file spam and various things I don't want into, but also Apple Mail special-casing it as the "Junk" folder. Then when I switched to Spam Quarantine, I deleted Spamscreen, but Apple Mail recreated it, one level lower down. Then I deleted the new INBOX (with the invisible Spamscreen in it; it's invisble because it's shown as Junk somewhere else), and it did it again.

"I'm sorry, sir, but boojum's inbox is too busy to see you, sir. You'll have to speak to the inbox's inbox."

*mail gets re-routed*

"Very sorry, sir, but you'll need to speak to our inbox about this."
