Re: [Evolution] Unsubscribed folders reappear

I suppose it's an IMAP account. Try Edit->Preferences->Mail Accounts-

<the account>->Edit->Receiving Options->Show only subscribed folders

I’m having the same issue, but folders keep re-appearing even after
enabling that option (Evolution 3.40.4). Could there be another option
interfering with that one?

I suspect it's some oddity with Gmail.

The IMAP folder subscription list is kept on the server not locally
(although there is probably a cache of the list locally).  Gmail is not
really designed for use with IMAP, hence Google's implementation seems
to be a series of workarounds to try and make it look like it works.
Specifically, in Gmail the concept of a "folder" doesn't exist, but
they  use "labels" as an analogue of folders. This largely works.

However, sometimes the interaction between "folders" and "labels" can
be a bit odd.  Sometimes the Gmail version of folders doesn't work like
folders in other IMAP implementations.

So, you need to go into Gmail settings on the web (not the Evolution
one) and select "Labels" (Cog -> All Settings -> Labels). In there you
will see a setting against each label name of "Show in IMAP".
Enable/Disable as desired.
