import imap / thunderbird "keywords" - imap backend

Hello, we are running kopano community, nightly build from April 2019.
I am currently importing all mails fro mall users, and one user is heavily using the Thunderbird “keywords” feature, which are actually converted to non-system IMAP flags with names like $Label3 etc. I use imapsync resp. kopano-migration-imap and it can be convinced to sync these flags with --regexflag 's/$Label/$Label/g (actually this is just a trick with a 1:1 “replacement”, thus circumventing the special character $). The imapsync logs say the labels are written to the destination server, but on the next sync they are written again and they do not seem to appear on the dest server. Can the kopano imap gateway store non-system IMAP flags, and has anybody succeeded in transferring such flags with imapsync / kopano-migration-imap? Regards, Jakob

we are facing the same issue after migrating from dovecot Imap Server and digged deeper as the Keywords are stored in custom flags section of Imap Server.
A quick telnet session revealed that Kopano-Gateway does not support this capability. We unfortunately did not find anything on the web regarding solution of this topic which irritated us.
One has to think some people using Kopano as alternative Mail System also need extended Imap capabilities implemented years ago in stock Imap Servers.
most users actually use Kopano through Kopano WebApp, which has support for labels/categories.
If you want to submit a patch to add this functionality to kopano-gateway we will be glad to review it for you.
