When creating (or renaming) a mailbox in [IMAP4] it is desirable to be able to specify additional creation time parameters that can't be changed after the mailbox is created. Some examples of the creation time parameters are: mailbox type, mailbox location on a server or a cluster of servers, mailbox flag state. This document extends IMAP CREATE and RENAME commands to allow for such parameters. A server which supports this extension indicates this with a capability name of "X-DRAFT-I01-CREATEPARAM".
