I use Mac Mail to work with an IMAP account. Is it possible to subscribe only to a set of folders, e.g., synchronize only the folder "current" and all its subfolders, but not the folder "archive"? I tried right-click on folder > Account Information > Abonnements/Subscriptions but there no folders are listed.
Press command-i (letter i) in Mail.app, select the account in the popup menu and go to the “Subscription List” tab. From there you should be able to select/deselect shared IMAP mailboxes.
