Hi everybody,

I have many folders in my imap accounts and the sorting is a little bit strange. Not alphabetically and not creation date of the folders. It also shows multiple "Sent" folders.

Please add a button or setting to select in which way Folders should be sorted.

Please, and a setting for subscribe to folders

Really? No reaction to this bug?

This is really getting on my nerves as I have many mails and so I have many folders on my accounts, too. The order of the folders is completely wrong! Subfolders are located in wrong parent folders and so on.

It can't be such a hard thing to fix this!

I have something similar. Using Exchange mail:

I have folder structure as follows: Inbox/folder1/folder2

On the phone, the Folder 2 is beneath "Junk" and not under Inbox/folder1 as it is supposed to be. Contents of the folder are correct.

This MR may solve this issue.

Agree, it looks like IMAP folders are sorted since last updated folder first ( last added mail into folder )

And alphabetical sorting option or default behaviour like every normal IMAP client will be highly appreciated in next release.

This issue is here since 1st release of salifish.

Using IredMail here, but presume all IMAP mail account will meet this behaviour
