When I say subfolders those are any folders under the root INBOX
folder. Courier IMAP places the entire folder tree as subfolders of
INBOX. Depending on email client and how it deals with IMAP namespace
these subfolders appear either on the same level as INBOX or a Level
under INBOX. So far with version .9 of thunderbird (as well as
evolution 1.4.6) with a courier imap server these folders always appear
under the IMAP level (as subfolders) regardless of namespace value I've
So, on Thunderbird it fails to see the contents of these subfolders or
to write to these subfolders (so on send, you get an error about the
sent folder being unavailable or a disconnection error to save your sent
copy). On evolution it has no problem seeing or writing to these
