Nested IMAP folders

| nestedFolders.gif | Most mail readers are capable of displaying nested IMAP folders, as show to the right. However, they don't allow you to create the nested directory structure, only to display it; you have to use Linux commands to do it. Here is how to set up a nested folder hierarchy in your IMAP folders.

The steps are:

  • Find the location of your IMAP mail files; click on the web link if you don't know where this is. (Before the IMAP file switch, this will be probably be your home directory or ~/mail; after the switch, it will probably be /a/mail/folders/$user, where $user is the name of your Nevis account.) |
