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.
I had this same issue. I am using Mail version 8.2.
I found this to be a fix for me.
When I create a new account in Mac Mail, it shows the account name under "Inbox."
Under that account name are four folders - Sent, Drafts, Junk, and Trash.
You have to click on one folder at a time to highlight it, then in the top menu, select Mailbox > Use This Mailbox As > and select the correct mailbox (Sent, Drafts, Junk, or Trash).
When I did this, my Sent, Trash, Junk, and Draft folders that were under my email account name, moved under the "Main" Sent, Trash, Junk, and Draft sections. It took a second or two for them to sync to the server and not show a warning sign next to the folder name.
Under Mail > Preferences > Accounts > Advanced, I left the IMAP Path Prefix blank. I did change the Port from 143 to 993, checked the Use SSL box, and set the Authentication to Password. I used these settings because they match what my host provider provided me to use for my Incoming Server settings. I'm not sure this mattered or not.
