Hallo developers,

I will start to work on the samples for configuration. Will
will create a demo-mailbox and a demo-setup for neomutt.
Helpful for new users and for demos.

I have few questions about maildir folders and config

# User-configuration folder

1) ~/.config/neomutt/
2) ~/.neomutt/

Which folder should I use for the samples?

Just found:

I will take 1), because it's the first folder neomutt will
look into. ok?

# Maildir

I use a maildir folder structure in ~/.maildir/
In don't know why, maybe I found something in the internet,
but im using dot-folders and all folders are in ~/.maildir/
- there are no subfolders.

~/.maildir % ls -a

Is this necessary? I don't like the hidden-folders in
~/.maildir/ and I would like to have a hierarchy. I'm using
a . to build the hierarchy.

For "demo-mailbox" and "demo-setup" I would like to have a
correct and good setup.

Thanks a lot for your help.
