That is a great help - they work perfectly! 

However, this structure now messes up the names of folders in Evolution
(as I should have realized - it generates maildir++). What I would like
to do now is to have the top level directory (~/Maildir) as my inbox and
the rest of the substructure as unhidden folders separated by "/"

So I have tried :

[Repository Local]
type = Maildir
localfolders = ~/Maildir
sep = /

[Repository Remote]
type = IMAP
remotehost =
remoteuser = ajs
nametrans = lambda foldername: re.sub('^INBOX\.', '', foldername)

as suggested in the manual. However this creates


With 2 copies of the emails: one set in ~/Maildir/cur and an identical
set in ~/Maildir/INBOX/cur

How do I stop the ~/Maildir/INBOX/ being created with INBOX emails just
going into ~/Maildir ?

Thanks again for the help
