    I connect to my e-mail account via IMAP and have several folders in the Inbox. I decided to consolidate some of the folders into one folder via Microsoft Outlook 2007 but now it appears that after the move of a particular folder it left behind a ghost folder that I can't get rid of. It shows up in the folder listing in Outlook but it doesn't show up in the folder listings that I can subscribe to nor does it show that I am subscribed to it.

    I logged into Roundcube (installed for webmail use) and it shows the same. It lists the folder in the tree but it doesn't show that it is subscribable. I can't delete the folder because it says I either don't have permission or it doesn't exist. How can I get rid of this ghost folder?

    Thanks!

    can you confirm ?

    When you login to your webmail >> squirremail >> folders

    can you see those folder under: Unsubscribe/Subscribe

    if they are ? are they subscribed ?

    if they are then un-subscribe them and the see back...

    Ah, it did show up in SquirrelMail and I was able to get the folder deleted. Thanks! I wonder why I was unable to do so within Outlook and Roundcube. It doesn't matter, as long as it was fixed that's all that really matters at the moment.

    Thanks again!
