CIDIR Bizkaia.Thanks Jose, Yes in the advanced options on email clients there is always a place to put the root folder path or (some similar name) and on the old server I used ~/mail/ in all of the email clients (thunder
bird, outlook, seamonkey etc) and that worked fine. Doing that on the new dovecot based server produces the effect I've described - a folder called mail visible at the same level as inbox and the other IMAP folders inside that. On the older imapd based server doing the same thing produced a view of inbox with no mail folder ... just the IMAP folders in it displayed at the same level as inbox. Regards, David
