It appears the mail server doesn't store the folder names in utf-8. Is this Gmail or some other IMAP server? I need to know exactly which one to be able to replicate it...

Yes, this is the default Gmail server (
I use it with Hungarian language settings.
Both the accented default folder names and the user created ones are wrong.

As far as I can tell, the folder names should be properly decoded. Please, report back to confirm whether it's working as expected on your end.

Thank you
