Hey there! I'm not completely sure I understand the question. You're using some code to try to connect to Yahoo mail and not getting all the folders? If that's the case, I'm not a developer so I don't have any helpful thoughts, but I'll leave this marked as new for a bit so others can provide their feedback.

Hey @cPRex ,

thx for your response , i guess i got distracted while typing the message. i have corrected the tread. i have a simple php script that loges in the IMAP and gets all the folders , when i connect to my cPanel i see only one folder inbox and no other , while there is junk , sent etc . When i use this script on other IMAP servers such as yahoo, i get a list of all folders .

It doesn't sound like you're doing anything obviously wrong as I would expect the default folders to show up with that connection. If you'd like to make a ticket with our support team we can take a courtesy look to see if there's something up on the server side.

When connecting to an IMAP server, you will only see folders that contain messages. If you want to see all folders, including those that are empty, you need to use the IMAP_LIST command.
