Yes, using `folderfilter`, which can be a lambda (offlineimaprc is
basically just Python). So I have something like:

folderfilter = lambda foldername: not'(^Deleted|^Junk|^Tasks|^Calendar|^Notes|^Contacts|^Drafts)', 

which excludes folders matching the regexp in

There's bin quite some discussion about that on the mu4e mailing list,
and AFAIK there is a workable solution for it. But I don't use it
myself, so I can't really say. I'd check the archives and ask on the
mu4e mailing list if you still have questions.

This, too, has been discussed on the mailing list, IIRC.

Perhaps not compared to the gnus mailing list, but I'm subscribed and
can say that the list is active enough. Also, the mu/mu4e maintainer
reads the list and answers questions.
