Email and Folders
First let me say I am new to BlueHost (today) and new to using a commercial web hosting service. While I've got a solid 30 years technology experience a lot of the tools and functions here are new to me.
One of the things I looked for in a hosting service was IMAP email capability. I want to be able to look at the same mail on my desktop in my home office, my laptop when I am on the road, and (soon) my phone/PDA.
I would like to be able to use subfolders in IMAP email, but it seems I can't do that - is this a service restriction?
Also, what is the difference between the three webmail clients? I created a subfolder in one but didn't seem to be able to see it anywhere else. Do they use different folder structures?
Thanks from the newbie
To see folders:
In the top left, there will be dropdown to select the folder.
After hitting the + next to "mail", you will see the folders
this one is a bit annoying. Go to the "folders" link at the top, then in the bottom right, click on the folder in the list. Then hit the "subscribe" button.
Setting it up as imap, then going to the firstname.lastname@example.org link in the left window, you are asked if you want to get a list of available folders. Hit yes. you then select which folders.
Hit the folder icon at the top. Then add the name in the text box, and hit add.
Hit the folder icon at the top. At the "Choose action:" drop down, choose "create folder".
Go to the "folders" link at the top, fill out the text field under "Create Folder" then hit create.

I'm actually using Outlook 2003. If I right-click on the Inbox there is an IMAP menu item that takes me to a dialog box where I can select the folders.
I can see the "high-level" folders, i.e., same level as InBox, but I can't see a subfolder (of InBox) that I created through Horde.
