Hi.

i'm running latest mail.app. i'm using smtp at my company. all my mail is filtered into multiple imap folders via procmail on the server side. however mail.app is only checking the inbox for new email.
googling for this, found a script from 2004 to force checking all mail folders. but i found it unreliable and doesn't always work.

I'm wondering if apple is planning on adding such a feature, or if there is another way i can force mail.app to check every imap mail folder for new messages?

every mail client i've worked with on all operating systems has such a feature (thunderbird, evolution, outlook, etc...), so i'm surprised mail.app doesn't have this!.

Any help would be much appreicated.

Regards,
Fadi.
