Thunderbird doesn’t notice new IMAP folders

So perhaps you have used a web-interface to create new subfolders on an IMAP server. The problem is that thunderbird doesn’t show them, and no amount of clicking on things seems to solve the problem or show these subfolders.

The answer is to click on the account in question (i.e. one level up from your Inbox), then click “Manage Folder Subscriptions”. From there on it should be obvious – find the folders, and tick the boxes. Job done.

All hail the Motherland

It appears to be a popular pass-time to wander the streets of Kyiv, beer in hand, and admire the giant Soviet-era statues. Which suits me just fine.


Just look at those Russian abs. They knew how to make you, umm, feel impressed upon.
