A folder to access Maildir format (1 file is 1 mail).
Normally, directory-name is a relative path to the variable
elmo-maildir-folder-path (default is `~/Maildir'), but if it
starts with `/' or `~', then it is treated as an absolute path
(this is also true for drive-letters).
Maildir contains `cur', `new' and `tmp' subdirectories. Messages are contained in the `cur' directory. All message files in the `new' directory are moved to `cur' directory when you access the folder. All message files contained in the `tmp' directory and not accessed for 36 hours are deleted.
This behavior conforms to the http://cr.yp.to/proto/maildir.html.
. -> `~/Maildir' .inbox -> `~/Maildir/inbox' .from/teranisi -> `~/Maildir/from/teranisi' .~/test -> `~/test'
