Not so
Authored by: jorn_k on Jul 19, '05 12:00:51PM
This hint is untrue.

I wish this were not the case, but simply deleting and/or locking the ~/Library/mail/[user@somedomain.com]/Public Folders/ does not stop mail.app from querying those directories on the server. Just watch the Activity Viewer and you'll see it Getting unread count for mailbox "Public Folders/". This is exactly what I do not want.

The only way that I can imagine to get the desired effect here is for mail.app to support the very standard ability to subscribe/unsibscribe to different IMAP directories. So far, Apple has yet to implement this.

Somebody, please correct me here. Please.

Restrict access?

Instead of deleting the offending folder, why not turn off access to it? Select the folder, go to File and then Get Info. Under "Ownership and Permissions," set it to No Access.
