funny i only ever hear windows users refer to them as folders, for as
long as I can remember, no linux or unix  has ever had a webfolder
command :) in fact im buggered if i can find that term used anywhere on
my machines, except when sifting through the /home/res/mail/mailscanner
& sent-mail files, whats even more funny its not in apache ;)
