    Question: Has anyone been able to manually setup an IMAP mail account with a designated root folder? Mine apparently keeps resetting to a null object.

    As soon as I close the mail app or reboot the TouchPad the root folder section of my mail preferences disappears.

    I've tried removing the account, and manually adding it. Interestingly enough, I cannot set the root folder when first creating the account (with manual settings). I have to create the account with the manual settings -- then re-edit the manual settings.

    The root folder designation works on my Pre- running 1.4.5.

    I set up 5 IMAP accounts without a problem. The automatic set-up never works on webOS, I always have to manually check the details and make a couple adjustments.

    I've not tried messing with the root folder, so I left it alone. What's that do?

    I agree, IMAP does work. I have multiple accounts with an IMAP setup. However, my one I use for work requires an IMAP root folder to function.

    The root folder path is the mailbox that contains all of the users' folders on the IMAP server. For UNIX-based IMAP servers, mail is usually stored in its own folder in the user's home folder (for example, ~username/ImapMail)
