10.5: A fix for not showing IMAP sub-mailboxes
Authored by: LooseBruce on Mar 13, '08 03:36:48AM

The behavior that you're experiencing, " insisting on an imap prefix of INBOX" is dependent upon what imap server your host is running. From my research it appears that it's UW-IMAP that exhibits this behavior whereas another imap server, such as Dovecot, does not. Dovecot communicates the correct prefix for your mail client to use whereas UW-IMAP does not, thus needs your help when it connects to UW-IMAP. Here, Leopard, v3.2, receiving mail via Dovecot IMAP server, my imap prefix setting is left blank and mail does not complain. Check with your host.
