Hi guys - I'm making my first foray into IMAP, and when I try to create a folder (right-click my IMAP personal folder and choose "New folder") I get [The server responded "unknown namespace"] . I'm only able to create folders within the Inbox, not "alongside" the Inbox as a top level folder.

What's happening here?

Thx

Try the steps Princeton Univ. uses:KB: Outlook: how to add a top level folder in Outlook with a name of your choice

Right click Inbox>Give new folder a name>Folder Contains "Mail & Post Items">Select Inbox as the place>OK. If you can't see the new folder hit the + sign to expand. If this is what you've been trying to do, it's called a subfolder.

Hi Corday, no I'm not trying to create a subfolder. I don't want the folder as a "child" of the Inbox, but rather a sibling.

ie. I want this hierarchy:

Personal Folder
-Inbox
-Folder 1
-Folder 2
etc.

I don't want:

Personal Folder
-Inbox
-Folder 1
etc.

I'm going to bow out on this and hope someone can help. I've tried to create on my unit and I can either create a "major" or a sub but not a child.

So you're having the same issue?
