The following is what I use to replicate the directory structure from
dovecot to local maildirs (which are used by another instance of
dovecot). For this to work, the base directory needs to already be a
valid maildir with cur,new,tmp subdirectories.

pythonfile = ~/.offlineimap.py

if foldername == 'INBOX':
return '.' + foldername
