Fix an IMAP path prefix problem with Mail
Authored by: xsundeep on Dec 31, '08 06:14:55AM


Another place to look for this is a hidden file on your server (yes, on your server) named .mailboxlist : It should be in the homedirectory. Sometimes, you will see issues with this file. Renaming it will recreate a new one.

(Email clients do a surprising number of things that are server dependent- for instance, deal with "standard" mail formats versus "mbx" formats. They also save your folder structure in .mailboxlist, after which you will see the folder structure even if you change the imap prefix).
