Fix IMAP Root Folder
The IMAP Root Folder setting is not working in Outlook for Mac for years now. The Windows version abides by this setting and will show folders correctly. On IMAP servers who require the root folder to be set (for example "INBOX"), Outlook has this setting but ignores it, showing all the IMAP server folders as childs under Inbox. This is infuriating, please fix :D

same here and it sucks
Exactly the same problem here. On Outlook for Windows this setting works correctly, on Outlook for Mac it seems to be completely ignored.
I got the same problem. I there any solution? On my Windows device it works, on my Mac it does not work. Outlook (Office 365) deletes automatically the "INBOX" entry.
