Implementation of custom imap path prefix

For some email providers it’s necessary to change the default imap path prefix to a custom one. 
This problem was described in the following conversation:
Would be happy, if this feature is included in future versions. 
Many thanks in advance

Hi Johannes,
thank you for sharing your Idea, we’ll consider adding the feature to future releases.


I have got the same problem. I cannot use the mail client at work to access all our IMAP folders. I wanted to try eM Client as an alternative to Thunderbird, but without that feature I cannot use it. Otherwise our company probably would have bought the Pro License for all our colleagues.

I realize this is an old conversation, but without being able to set the IMAP path prefix, neither I nor my colleagues can use eM Client.

All users in our organization have a home folder that IMAP clients display as a series of dot files and folders. We make ~/mail folders for our IMAP users and put their mail and mailboxes into those folders. Outlook, Thunderbird, or Postbox can set a root IMAP path prefix, as can some other clients. We have a few people that would be interested in eM Client if this could be set.
