Using IMAP for Lotus Notes and cannot see all folders.

Hello,

I would like to use Thunderbird with a Notes/Domino 8.5.3 account. When I connect to a user account, I only see the Inbox, the user created folders, and the trash. I verified what I could see using Telnet.

Why don't the other folders (sent, drafts, etc) and views show up when I use the IMAP protocol? Is there a way to make them show up?

Thanks,
John

AFAIK the other folders and views are mapped to existing, other elements of Thunderbird.

No, that cannot be done. The IBM documentation says this:  "And finally, IMAP clients do not display views that are part of the Notes mail file template, such as the Draft and Sent view. "

Thanks, ThomasMcA2. Please send me the URL link. I would like to read it in more detail.

I experimented with Authenticate Plain and noticed that this allows me to see the Drafts and Sent view. This is an administrative method. It needs more testing, but from my initial tests it may work.

I would like to see the official documentation, however. If it is not supported then I would rather not try an unsupported method. It would be hard to get help if it were unsupported.
