Add a way to configure the CategorizedMailboxes

Related to #150, #151, #154, #159

Right now the CategorizedMailboxes are forced to have the following names:

  • Drafts
  • Sent
  • Junk
  • Trash
  • Archive

The main problem with this is that it assumes you have your mailbox in English and it doesn't have to be. In my personal case, having the mailbox in Spanish, the names of the CategorizedMailboxes are:

  • Borradores
  • Enviados
  • Spam
  • Papelera
  • Archivo

And when you try to perform some kind of action that requires using any of these CategorizedMailboxes the system crashes with a 500 error.

It would be very interesting to have some method for the user to choose which directories correspond to the CategorizedMailboxes in their our settings.

It would be better for the server to support special-use mailboxes so that each and every client doesn't need to be configured separately by the user.

~emersion, yes. Your approach is much better than mine.
