    I must be blind again, but I can't get it to work (yet) so any suggestion is very welcome.

    Server: ISPConfig 229, Ubuntu 6.10 fully updated. Squirrelmail per ISPConfig package. Maildir and IMAP.
    Client: Thunderbird

    All works, mail is arriving at the Inbox. Now I want to create a subdirectory to sort my emails. With Squirrelmail, no problem, I can just create a directory. With Thunderbird, the newly created directory is a subdirectory of "Inbox", whereas in Squirrelmail it's a subdirectory of the root..

    When I try to create a directory with Thunderbird, no juice. No error, no message, just no creation of the directory. No erors in my log-files. Only if I specify to create a subdirectory of Inbox, the requested directory is created. According to Google (well, the references I found) this is due to the NAMESPACE setting. But the default is "INBOX." in my Thunderbird. As it should be for Courrier to fix this problem and have directories directly under "root".

    Any suggestions?

    Can you change that setting in Thunderbird?
    I don't think this is a problem with Courier because if that was the case it wouldn't work with Squirrelmail either.

    Yes, you can. And I did. But for some reason it's not used :confused:
    That's why I hoped some reader of this forum has experienced this before.

    Haven't had time today to look at it. Busy transferring sites to my new 'powered by ISPconfig' servers.

    Hm... Maybe you need to restart Thunderbird or even the whole system?
