Surely questions are not usually the solution to a problem.
Perhaps answering my question might help.
I found both of these completely useless.
You would have to specify which response you are referring to
if you are really trying to help.
I looked at the first 10 responses to the first google query,
and none of them referred to KMail at all.
Also, I'm not sure what you mean by "mangle around on the server"
directly on the server
especially as your suggestion was to "add the folder on the IMAP
Just to repeat my query: one cannot add a top-level folder
in the current version of KMail, as one could in some older versions
than just connect with *whatever* IMAP client from your workstation to
your account and add it with that but why in the world would anybody
install a graphical mail cient on a server for just add a folder
if someone needs a mail-client on a server: http://roundcube.net/
*still is using IMAP* and don't touch files and folders on a mailserver
directly for good reasons
to be honest: the better question is why not throw away kmail at all if
it is lacking such basic functionality? the last time i tried using it
on a livecd it displayed mails multiple times and unlickly by remove the
appearant copies it killed also the real messages
If I simply add a folder to ~/Maildir/ on my server
it does not appear in KMail on my laptop
hence i said: "don't mangle around on the server"
