I don't think so. When I was using the top level folder "Calendar", 
everything worked fine.

I've also tried to create "Shared Folders^My Folders^Calendar" and 
everything worked fine with the new configuration.

I was using Isode M-Box (my own), but I don't believe that should make 
any difference.

I can create an account for you, if you are interested.

I am not sure, maybe it is related to subfolders with spaces in names.
I've tried synchronizing with "Test/Calendars" and this seems to work.
After that I've tried to configure SyncKolab to synchronize with "Shared 
Calendars/Test Kolab" and the mailbox list has disappeared. I thought 
I've seen other people complaining about the same?
