Outlook 2013, IMAP, and “You don’t have permission to create an entry in this folder” error

Symptom

Using an IMAP email account with Outlook 2013 and no email are displaying in the main “Inbox” fold. If you try to create a new email in the “Inbox” folder you receive the error “You don’t have permission to create an entry in this folder”.

Fix

You may need to define a “Root folder path”. On the “Advanced” tab in your account settings, set the “Root folder path” to “Inbox”.
