IMAP folders - root


#1

Hi all. Could someone tell me how to create imap folders that start from the root, rather than from the inbox. I had a look around here and could see some hints to the problem, but not the solution. Or is this not a good idea? Seems neater to me. Thanks.

I believe that INBOX is the root (prefix). Yes, no prefix would be neater, but this is the way it is. Because of this, my inbox is probably really INBOX.Inbox, which seems pretty goofy.

Thanks for the quick reply. On my home email server I’ve set the folders from the root which is in my opinion much better. Ah well, at least I know. Thanks.
