How can I force an IMAP folder list refresh in Mail.app?

Setup:

  • Mountain Lion
  • Mail.app
  • Gmail over IMAPS

I have already tried:

  • Hide/show from folder sidebar (does not trigger a refresh of folders)
  • Various "rebuild" commands, at different levels of the folder hierarchy
  • Switching selected folders a few times
  • Selecting "Synchronise Tino Sino" from the Mailbox menu
  • Sending myself a message (as a last resort)

Any ideas, please?

In Thunderbird.app, there is one such command available through right-clicking...
