Hi Experts,

I am setting up thunderbirds for my users at work, and their emails are IMAP mailboxes.

They want to create  Folders & sub-folders (hierarchy) like they do in their other Exhange Outlook Mailboxes.  Unfortunately, I don't seem to find it working.  Is it because IMAP mailboxes doesn't allow that?  Or Thunderbird prohibits it?  

if not, can anyone point me in some reference site, so that I can understand why IMAP server won't allow it?  and then I can find my explaination to my users?  thanks very much.
