[TriLUG] TriLUG IMAP Server problems (was Re: missing email)

Nevermind... just had to refresh the folder view within Squirrelmail.
Weird thing is that some folders were actually shown as "subscribe" but I
suspect the parents were not subscribed, thus no subfolders were shown. I
had originally thought that this would only affect Thunderbird but I see
that it also affected SquirrelMail too.
Sorry for the false alarm, and thanks so much for the recovery!!
