    Flat or hierarchical folders?

    I do not seem to be able to create folders beneath other folders from my mail client (Thunderbird).

    A tool I use says that all folders have  NoInferiors set which I believe is the issue.

    Is this possible with Mecury?

    You can have hierarchical folders, but folders that have subfolders cannot have messages within them.

    OK, but how do I enable this.

    Somewhere I need to stop every folder having /NoInferiors set

    I cannot find reference to this in any documentation

    Mercury/32 IMAP4 does not support folders that contain both messages and sub-folders.  Thunderbird needs to be setup properly in Account Settings | Server Settings | Advanced.  The box marked "This server supports folders that contain sub-folders and messages" must not be checked since this is not supported.  This will allow you to create a "Folders only" folder that can contain other folders.

    It seems to me, that Outlook 2010 automatically checks it.

    Thanks for your reply FJR.

    Using Outlook (2013) with multiple e-mail accounts only one account I can manage to have hierarchical folders. The other accounts, even creating a new account I cannot manage to create hierarchical folders.

    How can I fix this?
