imexpire folder patterns

Folder patterns can be specified using POSIX regular expressions, if the imexpire attribute regexp is set to 1. If the regexp attribute is not set (the default), IMAP expressions will be used. The format is that the folder pattern must start with user/, followed by a pattern. imexpire folder pattern examples shows the both formats of folder pattern for various folders.
