Summary0005057: mail identities and shared mailboxes

Let suppose we share with full acl controls a mailbox like with folders INBOX, Sent, Junk, Drafts, Trash

to a set of accounts, such as and

Each and have their INBOX, Sent, Junk, Drafts, Trash folders too.

When logins to SOGo webmail and mark as Junk a mail of a folder, then that mail should be moved to the Junk folder of and not to the Junk folder.
The same should happen for other folders: when send a mail using the Identity (From) "", then a copy of the mail should be placed in Sent folder of, and not in Sent folder of When delete a mail from a folder of, that mail should be moved to the Trash folder of

I think this behavoir could be reached if you could allow selection of Junk, Trash, Drafts and Sent folders too into an email identity.

Another possibility, completely different, is to allow login as another user. SASL PLAIN let you to enter the authorization username and the authentication username. So and could login to the mail account with their own passwords.
I prefer the Identity choice really.

Do you think these features could be developed in SOGo?

Thank you to consider this.

This is impossible for SOGo, as sharing is only used by the IMAP server.
The IMAP server maps those shared folders into the postbox of the user shared to.
Therefore SOGo only sees a bunch of folders with different ACLs.
That some of these are shared ones, is not recognizable.
The only special ones are those defined in sogo.conf.
You only could guess based on the name of sauch folder.
That would be highly unreliable.
And you can not guarantee, that Junk or Trash or Sent is shared at all.
