Hi Dariusz,

> showing labels from two accounts on sidebar

Currently, as you've found, it's not possible.

There are two problems:
- There's no "description" field for the mailboxes
- "$folder" is global to all mailboxes

I'm working on a fix, but unfortunately my time is spread pretty thin.

First, is a new config system (to the users it will be identical).
Next is a new account system.  This will allow account-specific variables.

The goal is a config file like:

account Gmail
    set folder   = imaps://imap.gmail.com:993
    set realname = "Richard Russon"
    mailboxes =INBOX =family =friends

account Work
    set folder   = imaps://linux.com
    set realname = "Rich (FlatCap) Russon"
    mailboxes =INBOX =project1 =project2

This would make configuring NeoMutt simpler and remove the need for

    Rich / FlatCap
