Work at SourceForge, help us to make it a better place! We have an immediate need for a Support Technician in our San Francisco or Denver office.
I used Althea for the first time yesterday and it did
not recognise the folders which contain other folders
on my IMAP server. I'm using the UW IMAP server.
I cannot use Althea without this facility.

When we originally started althea we discussed and argued
and fought over whether or not to support sub-folders. I
think our final decision was that it was a feature that was
going to make our data s-=tructure a lot more complicated
and so in the interest of getting something stable done
quickly (we only had 10 weeks to get something done) we
didn't include sub-folders. There is of course, room to
change in althea and so knowing that you want this feature
is important to us considering a data change. I'm curious
to know how you use sub-folders. I'm starting to believe
that it might be a good feature since you could have a
"Development" folder and under this folder you could have a
folder for each development list you were subscribed to,
like "Althea-Devel List." More to think about....

Same thing here -- I've got about six years of saved mail
in nested folders, originally built in Eudora then copied
to my Linux host in mbox format. Outlook Express and
Eudora 5 both grumble about finding directories under
~/mail rather than just mbox files, but they DO handle it.
E.g. I have a "Finance" folder that is broken down
into "Banking", "Insurance", and so forth. I could
flatten the hierarchy but it would be a lot of work and the
result would be much less useful. It would require a very
tall window, or a lot of scrolling, or both.
What I'm doing now is reading and discarding a lot of stuff
in mutt on the Linux box, then moving to a Windows box and
using Eudora as my IMAP client to drag-and-drop the things
I want to file away permanently. Yeah, it's as icky as it
sounds. (Eudora's so confused that it displays TWO folders
I was really excited to hear about a Linux IMAP client with
a GUI. I appreciate your efforts, and hope you can
accomodate this feature request. Thanks!

Done. Sub folders are not supported to some extent... they
will be listed as
in the tree... ideally I think we would want them to be in
subtrees, but this is a start....
