From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.8) Gecko/20020207 BuildID: 2002020712 With a IMAP account with a specific directory (ns_imap_server/), when trying to empty trash, or delete or move a folder, mozilla use an empty folder name so it gets the error message (for example): SELECT failed, impossible to rename ns_imap_server/ to ns_imap_server/Trash/. The name of the folder that was supposed to be deleted is missing from the command. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Setup an IMAP account with a specific directory bar 2. Create a folder foo 3. Delete it Actual Results: The following message appear SELECT: can not rename bar/ to bar/Trash Expected Results: Probably something like rename bar/foo to bar/Trash/foo
I think this might be a dup of Bug 115988. Same thing is discussed in Bug 119630. Reported: could you try the following (from Commment #3 of 119630)? 1. Select Menu 'Edit'->'Mail & Newsgroup Account Settings...' 2. In the opened 'Mail & Newsgroup Account Settings' dialog, select your account and then select 'Server settings' 3. In the right part of the interface, click the 'Advanced...' button 4. In the 'Advanced IMAP Server Settings' dialog, clear the 'Server supports folders that contain sub-folders and messages' checkbox to make it unselected.
Unckecking this option doesn't help for 'empty trash' which still fails and reports that ns_imap_server/ is not a selectable mailbox. Folder manipulation works (creating, moving, deleting) works. Message filters work.
anything new after 3 months and Bug 115988 being fixed ?
1.0 has the same behaviour as all the previous versions. Empty Trash fails with exactly the same error message.
Going through old unconfirmed bugs- reporter, please let us know if you are still seeing this.
On mozilla 1.2a, the bug has disappeared. Many thanks!
