Question regarding imap with Mail app

I've got a linux box setup as an imap server and I'm connecting to it from my iBook. I've set up Mozilla, Mail.app, and even Evolution to connect to it with no problem. Here's my question:

When I open Mail.app, it shows the entire directory for me on my linux box. How do I get it to show only the folders I've subscribed to?

your server is probably not handing back the correct namespace for the default folders. most mail clients guess anyway.

go into Mail and to the "advanced" tab of your account, and set the folder path for your imap directory. i.e. if your server is courier-imapd then your path would likely be set to:

~/Maildir
