In "Server Settings" I found the "Message Store Type" option. At the moment it is set to "File per folder (mbox)" but it is somehow "disabled" (I cannot change its value and cannot even see what other values are available for this option).

What values are available for it? How can I change its value?

Thanks

When a new account is created, the format is set to the default type, mbox. To have new accounts created in maildir format, change the setting in Settings/General/Indexing 'Message store type for new accounts'. The format for an existing account cannot be changed, so it is greyed out in Server Settings.

The main difference is mbox stores all messages in a folder in a single file, while maildir stores each message in a file.
