Description

4 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:33.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/33.0
Build ID: 20141011015303

Steps to reproduce:

Large IMAP folder / emails situation.  Takes 5 minutes and 1.9Gb peak mem to start up with extensions turned off.

Issues:
- various folders loose their synchronization flag and have to re-down load and thus loosing the tagging.   Most notably but not limited to the Sent folder.

- Sent folder (IMAP) is treated as a normal folder and down low in the folder list.  Looses it's sync flag on every restart.  It does seem to intermitantly be displayed up under Inbox where it belongs.



Expected results:

Folder sync flags get persisted.  The lose of persistence is on a few folders not all.  

Sent folder never looses persistence and is always shown up at the top under Inbox.

Could be server related.  What is the domain name of the server, and what imap server sfotware are they running?  see http://www.anta.net/misc/telnet-troubleshooting/imap.shtml - in addition to EXAMINE INBOX do EXAMINE SENT

How  many messages in Sent folder?  Inbox folder?

Greetings,

IMAP server is my personal server, an old comercial server: * OK speakeasy.net IMAP4rev1 MDaemon 6.5.2 ready

Sent folder always downloads it's 8k messages and it sorts Sent down Alpha with other folders.  Saving Sync flag fails as it fails with some folders.  Don't know the logic for which folders don't save.

Inbox at most 1k msgs.

BTW my imap folder hierarchy is huge.  TB bloats out to 1.9Gb before settling down to 200mb and 5 minutes to start up.

Waay back when TB was sub 20.x maybe sub 15, this bug did not exist.
