Unfortunately, I am still seeing issues with this in Kmail 5.1.3, using postfix
with dovecot (local delivery via procmail + dovecot deliver binary), with
Maildir folders, where the root (aka INBOX) contains subdirectories which are
additional Maildirs.

I noticed that when provisioning a new IMAP account, a whole ton of my folders
and subfolders (i.e. every one of them which wasn't one of the Kmail-special
ones you have to cross-link in the preferences, i.e. outbox, sent, trash,
drafts, and templates), was not checked as subscribed in the server-side
subscriptions folder list, so none of the most important folders were either
appearing in the folder list, or getting their messages synced by default. Not
even INBOX got subscribed properly, so none of your default message folder was
even getting synced.

In general, when users are provisioning a new account, it's vitally important
that every folder should get the server-side subscription enabled by default,
because I honestly can't think of a reason why anyone wouldn't want that by
default in the modern world.

You are receiving this mail because:
You are the assignee for the bug.
