Hey folks...

I use Sonic's webmail site at work (they block SSH - I usually SSH into the shell server at home).

One thing I've noticed is that all the IMAP folders I have (about 20) aren't refreshed unless I log off and log back in. Only the currently displayed folder is. So if I want to see if I have new mail in one of the folders, I have to either select it, or log off/back on. Even reloading the page in the browser doesn't seem to trigger a re-read of the folders.

Does anyone know if there's a setting that will make the webmail client reload all the folders (either on a schedule, or when I reload the browser)? Or is this a server configuration item I have no control over? Or can it be done at all?

Hi Tim,

There is a setting for this. To check all folders for messages, go to Settings, select the Mailbox View section, and under "New Message", check the box labelled "Check all folders for new messages".

Now any time it refreshes to check for new messages it will look in all folders and update accordingly.

Thanks Drew! I didn't know that setting existed! :-)
