This problem has been in thunderbird for as long as I can remember, it's
extremely annoying. I have to use thunderbird for daily work email as
Evolution is a horrible app and does not integrate with exchange very
well, despite their claimed plugins. Thunderbird connects to an exchange
2007 imap server as well as gmail and both have this problem, folders
often do not update. I extensively use server side filters and have to
know when new mail arrives in these folders.

Using the mail.check_all_imap_folders_for_new (boolean) set to true does not work, also trying the other option of creating a user.js file in the mozilla profile and adding:
user_pref("mail.check_all_imap_folders_for_new", true);
to the file does nothing either.

Manually going into each subscribed folder and setting it manually to
download check for new mails also does not work.

What other info do you require?
