Creating folders

I tried to create folders in an IMAP account from Thunderbird and I
could only create folders as Inbox sub-folders. Is it a bug or a feature?



I just tried creating a folder so let me ask you this, did you right-click on the account name or on the inbox when you went to create the folder? If you right-clicked on the account name it should have let you make a folder that wasn’t just a sub-folder.

I think this is a feature. Technically the all of the folder are sub-inbox folders. A folder you create will appear nested from the inbox of the IMAP account in question.

This is different behavior from pop setup, becuase it’s all being stored on the server.

Your sub-inbox folders should work exactly the way any other folder would. I think you’ll find it’s working just fine.
