Me Friends Hello,

Guys I'm facing a small issue and that is,

I created a New account(MS live Email account) on Thunderbird and set the

incoming protocol to IMAP and "" Port No 995 , SSL to SSL/TLS and Outgoing protocol to SMTP and "" Port No 25 , SSL to STARTTLS

Now What I want is that there are sub folders in my Web based Live Email account which are not appearing when I create the account in Thunderbird.

Please tell me how to get this thing done
