Subject Informing the client about changes in folder structure
Date Thu, 08 Jan 2015 16:16:30 GMT

I am using James with a custom made mailbox, which basically mirrors a 
folder structure from another system. I have done some tests with two 
Thunderbird clients connected to a JPA based mailbox to see, if changes 
made on one client in the folder structure, like adding a subfolder or 
renaming a folder, get pushed to the other client. While changes 
concerning the content of a mailbox get pushed immediately via the IDLE 
command, the client won't be informed about changes in the mailbox 
folder structure (which should be possible by sending unrequested LIST 

In my custom mailbox implementation it is common that changes in the 
folder structure occur from the outside. Internally I have a listener 
that gets notified if changes in the underlying store occur. I have 
tried to propagate these changes using the 
MailboxEventDispatcher.mailboxAdded method. Unfortunately the registered 
listeners of the IMAP session seem to only consume events regarding 
changes of the mailbox content and ignore events about the folder 

Is there any way to push changes in the folder structure to connected 
IMAP clients out of my mailbox implementation?

Thanks in advance and best regards,
Thomas Söhngen
