Click on it under SOURCES in the mailbox list. Then select “Mailbox 
▸ Take Online”.

Accounts are not supposed to go offline without some kind of warning 
having been displayed to the user. If this happens often then let me 
know and we can debug.

Ah, that's a bug. I had not considered that it would be necessary to 
handle this in the subscriptions code (usually, this problem would 
already have been fixed by the IMAP handling code).

Expired (access) tokens happen all the time. Let me know if taking the 
account online does not fix it.
