When connected and creating a new folder, it is not possible to move a message to the new folder without disconnecting the client and reconnecting.

The following code sequence is where I try to programmatically create a folder under the Inbox and then move the message:
//get handle to folder
Folder successFolder = imapFolder.SubFolders[successMoveTo];
// if doesn't exist
 if (successFolder == null )
//create it
successFolder = client.Folders.Inbox.SubFolders.Add(successMoveTo);
//move message to the target folder
Also, if I try and crete a folder at the client level (next to Inbox), the folder is not visible, although the api does find it programmatically. Is there any way to make the fodler visible ?

Thanks in advance,

Hi c_corso,

the behavior you described is strange, have you tried the same using the sample application? You can create subfolders by right clicking on a folder in the treeview on the left, and move messages there right clicking the message.

I will make some checks on this and fix the issue if it is one. Can you provide me with some more details on which server you're using?
