unity-mail IMAP sub-folders with non-ascii names

Bug Description

Looks like unity-mail does not support non-ascii names of IMAP sub-folders to scan.

ExtraFolders = user@server:/тест
UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode characters in position 1-4: ordinal not in range(128)

try python-like unicode string(also try with ' '):
ExtraFolders = u"user@server:/тест"
Unity-mail works well, but does not check this sub-folder in fact.

Great thanks for this tiny and nice program.
