Request to increase the 32K limitation of View and folder

There are many personal folders(about 1200 with hierarchy) in user's mail, when using IMAP client to subscribe the folders. Hit the error:
Failed to subscribe the folder. The server responded: SUBSCRIBE Field is too large (32K) or View’s column & selection formulas are too large.'
So failed to subscribe all folders. Customer can often see this kind of error from Notes/Domino. So request to increase the 32K limitation.

    1200 Folders? I know some users have those number of folders out in the field.


    Notes/Domino can handle those number of folders in general. But it doesn't make much sense to use so many folders in most cases!


    I would like to see an official recommendation how many folders are supported in Domino and I would like to see that limit around 1000 or even lower!


    From performance and best practices point of view so many folders are something we should avoid!
