Having used MS Outlook for a while with my IMAP account, I thought I would try out the new and improved Mail in OS X Lion. The structure of my mailbox on the left hand panel is as follows:
MAILBOXES INBOX CLIENT 1 CLIENT 2 CLIENT 3 SUBFOLDER SUBFOLDER SUBFOLDER CLIENT 4 CLIENT 5 CLIENT 6 CLIENT 7 SENT TRASH MY COMPANY NAME TRASH JUNK SENT
This has worked fine with Outlook, and with Outlook I am able to add extra IMAP folders (or mailboxes as Mail calls them). In Outlook I can add to the client folders, and the subfolders inside a client folder.
However, with Mail, when I add a new mailbox, it will only let me add a new folder inside one of my client folders. It will not let me add a folder to the "Client" level.
If I add a new mailbox, and try and place it at the top "Client" level, the new folder ends up going here:
MAILBOXES INBOX CLIENT 1 CLIENT 2 CLIENT 3 SUBFOLDER SUBFOLDER SUBFOLDER CLIENT 4 CLIENT 5 CLIENT 6 NEW FOLDER DOESNT APPEAR HERE CLIENT 7 SENT TRASH MY COMPANY NAME TRASH JUNK IT APPEARS HERE INSTEAD??? SENT
It doesn't go in my inbox.
Can anyone help? This is the reason I have to use Outlook, as Mail won't let me create new IMAP folders at my "Client" this level.
Any help would be appreciated. Maybe I am looking at it from the wrong side, as I am used to Outlook.
