    Default restrict imap access only to subscribed mailboxes.

    since apple mail cannot manage imap subscription i am using right now this local perl script as an imap proxy to hide the unsubscribed mailboxes for apple mail.

    link to script

    is there away to configure zimbras imap so it just serves subscribed folders via imap?

    thanx christof

    Default Not sure I understand...

    Since mailboxes are unsubscribed by default, how would the user be able to see them to initially subscribe to them?

    you are right but here is my situation:
    my users archive mails like this

    /Inbox
    /Inbox/2006
    /Inbox/2006/200601
    /Inbox/2006/200602
    /Inbox/2006/200603
    .
    .

    .
    .

    we have mails going back 4 years. total messag size 7 to 20 gb per account.

    i use thunderbird to subscribe/unsubscribe the folders i want. apple mail just does not seem to be able do deal with that amout of messages. its imap implementation is crap. my users log into the zimbra web client to search for mails older than the once they have subscribed.

    i know this is a hack. and i dont want this as a feature. i just want to hack this for my particluar usecase.
    there might be other apple users with the same prob.
    i would wonder how they solve this prob.
