I don't know if you have already noticed, but when I have a POP3 mail server, I cannot choose a folder name that I can choose to pick emails, however when I choose IMAP, i have the folder name option when adding the Mail Handler. Is this how it is supposed to be? If so, anyone know why this is the case?
