    Default Mail and IMAP rules

    It seems that I can't use a rule in Mail to direct an incoming message
    to an IMAP folder. Is this true, or have I done something wrong?

    I have many Mail.app rules that direct messages to IMAP folders. Have you
    tried adding a "Stop evaluating rules" at the end of the test rule?
    Otherwise a later rule can overrule it.

    My problem is that none of my IMAP folders appear in the popup menu. I'm
    trying to move the message to a mailbox called (just example) Example,
    which is in Mailing Lists, which is in In. But In appears without
    subfolders in the "to mailbox" menu.

    Ahh. The problem isn't the Rules, it's that Mail doesn't grok subfolders
    in main mailboxes (In/Out/Sent/Drafts/Junk). If you move the folder to the
    email account's top-level, it should become usable.

    Will that break the IMAP link? Because in truth the folder *is* on the
    top level of the server, it's just appearing under the In box for no
    good reason that I can determine.

    Huh. I didn't even think that was possible, so it's hard to advise you.
    You might experiment with some test folders.

    Okay, I did. Mail won't move the folder, it will only copy it. So I
    guess it would break the link.
