I must be doing something wrong. I tried the following, attempting to
mimick what I understood you to be saying. I placed these in the same
file that is sourced to log into Proton Bridge (I don't mind exposing
the few first names.):
set folder = imap://$firstname.lastname@example.org:1143 # The folder NeoMutt uses to access my mail.
set spoolfile = "+INBOX" # My home inbox.
mailboxes = +INBOX
mailboxes = +Drafts
mailboxes = +Sent
mailboxes = +Spam
mailboxes = +Trash
mailboxes = "+All Mail"
mailboxes = +Folders/0_PERSONAL +Folders/0_PERSONAL/"Bridge with Vince" +Folders/0_PERSONAL/Jessie +Folders/0_PERSONAL/June +Folders/0_PERSONAL/Mike +Folders/0_PERSONAL/Roger
mailboxes = +Folders/1_WORK
mailboxes = +Folders/2_MEDICAL
mailboxes = +Folders/3_TECHNICAL
mailboxes = +Folders/4_COMMERCIAL +Folders/4_COMMERCIAL/Receipts
mailboxes = +Folders/zGMAIL
This had absolutely no effect on the ordering of the folders/mailboxes
in the sidebar. Where have I gone astray?
Wishing you only the best,
Don't lie, but don't tell the whole truth.
