Sorry, you're right. The folders don't get selected, they're not
shaded in blue when you click on them. And on the column to the right
(number of e-mails column) ... there are no numbers. As if there were
no e-mails.

I've tried reloading (I'm at work now so I don't remember the exact
option): right click -> reload directory + sudirectories (it's the
second option from the top) ... nothing happens.

Either when I get back home (if it's not too late) or tomorrow
afternoon, I can try it again and send some CLI messages when running
from a konsole.

In any case, I still don't know where e-mails are imported too. My
main concern is where are e-mails stored once they're imported?
Importing "works", my only issue is where are my e-mails? So if
someone can tell me where they're copied (imported too) ... I'd stop
"pestering" ;)

Thanks for the help !!!! :)
