	Title		: IMAP4 Child Mailbox Extension

Many IMAP4 [RFC-2060] clients present to the user a hierarchical
view of the mailboxes that a user has access to.  Rather than
initially presenting to the user the entire mailbox hierarchy, it is
often preferable to show to the user a collapsed outline list of the
mailbox hierarchy (particularly if there is a large number of
mailboxes).  The user can then expand the collapsed outline
hierarchy as needed.  It is common to include within the collapsed
hierarchy a visual clue (such as a ''+'') to indicate that there are
child mailboxes under a particular mailbox.   When the visual clue
is clicked the hierarchy list is expanded to show the child
mailboxes.
 
The CHILDREN extension provides a mechanism for a client to
efficiently determine if a particular mailbox has children, without
issuing a LIST '' * or a LIST '' % for each mailbox name.

In the body type:

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
