True. Poor thinking on my side :(

I agree. I'll pass this to our tutors and teachers. Maybe they will
believe You :)

I looked around with ZMI but I didn't know what to do with all those folders.
They didn't contain any text-objects that contained the actual note text.
Nor did they have attributes that contained the note text. Trying to view
then caused an error. So I decided to ask here.

Now (after Your mail ;) ) when I come to think of it is obvious to map
notes, replies etc. as a tree-structure (folders). I really have to
look into the structrure on a FLE -instance more deeply.
