"IMAP daemons supply a list of subscribed mail boxes which Mail.app ignores. This bug has been reported to Apple a number of times for over a year, and they have not fixed it. "

True, but their IMAP folder prefix support is A-OK and since all of my IMAP folders (except INBOX) are in $HOME/Mail, I just put "~/Mail/" in the folder prefix location in the Preferences, and everything is just fine.

"My mail folders are mostly in a ~/mail/ directory, but some are not, because I use other email programs like IMPwebmail".

Then you should configure the other programs to either point to ~/mail/ which you probably can do, or at least construct a series of symbolic links pointing to something that you can point Mail.app to.

Also - you should dump IMP in a flash. Go with either Squirrelmail on Apache or IMHO on the Roxen webserver.
