adding Gmail IMAP account reorganizes mailboxes
Authored by: steven_kehlet on Nov 02, '07 12:43:07PM

Agreed. I think I figured out how to get this working though. When creating a new folder, prepend "INBOX/" to it to create the folder underneath your Inbox. E.g. INBOX/foo. This will make Gmail's IMAP just like more like what we're used to. Through the gmail web interface, you will see a corresponding new label appear, so you could probably create it through either interface. Tip: I had to quit and restart Mail to get it to notice the first one I created.

Even though this gets Mail.app to put the little triangle next to your inbox, you still can't seem to drag folders directly under your Inbox. You could create all your folders manually, or I found you can drag folders under any new folders you create. So I just created a folder called INBOX/folders, and then dragged all my folders under that.

Hope this helps anybody, this was driving me crazy too.
