In Outlook 2003, I am trying to copy subfolders from a POP3 Inbox to a IMAP Inbox.

If the IMAP root path is set up as ‘Inbox’, I get the message “Unable to navigate to the Folder. You cannot create or navigate to subfolders of your Inbox when you have a non-empty root folder path”.

If the IMAP root path setting is left empty, I get “This IMAP command could not be sent to the server before the connection was terminated”

The only way I can copy is to leave the root path setting empty and to set up a new folder (e.g. MyInbox) and copy the subfolder to that (or create a new subfolder with the same name as the folder I want to copy and then copy individual items). However, leaving the root path empty gives the usual daft IMAP folder display with Drafts, Sent, Trash and Spam listed as subfolders of Inbox rather than separate folders off the root.

DAK why I cannot simply copy a folder to an IMAP Inbox?
