Sub-mailboxes not affected by "Take Mailbox Offline" command?

Reported by Christian Robinson | December 10th, 2014 @ 12:50 PM

Hi there,

I am testing MailMate on an account with 10GB / 70k emails. So far it is performing far better than Airmail and Mail.app, hurrah!

I have noticed a couple of behaviours that I wanted to check were intended:

  • Highlighting multiple mailboxes under INBOX and selecting "Take Offline" leave submailboxes of those mailboxes unaffected. Eg. Mailboxes 1, 2 and 3 are taken offline, but submailboxes 1a, 1b and 1c (children of Mailbox "1") are kept online. Is this by design, and is there a recursive option for this command?

  • It doesn't seem possible to highlight multiple mailboxes and choose a new synch schedule, the only option is to choose a synch schedule for the entire account (ie. ALL mailboxes), then go through and change the schedule for those mailboxes you want to have a different schedule.

PS. I filed a ticket earlier today about MailMate FETCHing mailboxes that were offline which hasn't appeared in the list yet - I think the issue is actually that submailboxes are being FETCHed, rather than the "offline" status not being ignored.

    Yes, it's intentional. With IMAP a mailbox can both be a mailbox containing emails itself and be a parent of other mailboxes. I guess MailMate could behave differently when the mailbox does not contain emails or when the mailbox is collapsed. There is currently no recursive option, but selecting a range of mailboxes (⇧-select) should work. Or an explicitly recursive option in the menu. I'll consider this a request for some kind of solution.

    Yes, synchronization schedule cannot be changed for multiple selected mailboxes. I'll also consider that a request. Mailboxes with no explicitly schedule inherit from their parent mailbox.
