Indeed. I missed it because in my folderlist.xml
its name is empty, but I was able to change it:
1. close Sylpheed,
2. modify folderlist.xml, and
3. restart Sylpheed.
In Windows, the Sylpheed configuration directory
seems to be located at:
which is overriden by the configdir parameter in
sylpheed.ini, which in turn yields to Sylpheed's
--configdir commandline parameter. I like to speci-
fy the latter in the label properies.
