    I have just setup mail to access my work imap account but what I cant find out is how to choose what directories to subscribe to...currently it not only has my mail folders but also things like my .bash_history, .bash_profile, and any other folder from my user account on that machine. Any idea how to tell it not to subscribe to all these folder? If I 'delete' them will it just remove them from my mail client or will it actually delete them from the server?

    Usually when you see that, it means that you need to add a prefix.

    That's in Mail prefs, Accounts, under the Advanced tab, in the Account Directory field. On most servers that want this, the value will be either ~/Mail or ~/mail -- you may need to quit and restart Mail to see anything change.
