Hi, we have a cyrus IMAP server running, works fine with Mozilla 0.99. I actually suspect maybe issues with moving from the earlier KMail to this version, it didn't have fully sub-folder support, and there are some ghost-folders in the directory that are deleted, but still shown under KMail. What's the place to really wipe out the earlier tree structure? I tried to delete the account, and add it in, but saw the same problem -- so I suspect the IMAP tree structure is cached somewhere and that causes problems now later. Thx, Kent

Just delete your ~/.kde3/share/apps/kmail/imap/<accountname> directory after you deleted the account.

The IMAP folder level is only three levels deep, from Inbox forward. In other words, if there's another level of mailboxes they are not shown.

Inbox.main.folder - OK Inbox.main.folder.subfolder - not shown

It works without problems here, i.e. I have Inbox/KDE/temp/a/b/c so it's at least not a general problem.

What kind of IMAP server software is running on your IMAP server? Could you please try with another IMAP-capable mail program if it has the same problem? If yes, then it is probably a server problem and/or restriction.
