From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98; Win 9x 4.90; Q312461) BuildID: 2002041711 Back in the days I used to use Outlook Express (last week)I had a folder named /. to house things that would come from a similarly named website. Outlook Express named this folder ..dbx Mozilla imported my mail with mostly lots of trouble and then finally got all of it, however some folders were contained in the /. folder, which mozilla had named '.' sans quotes. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create folder in Outlook Express named '/.' sans quotes 2. Go delete Folders.dbx as mozilla can't seem to figure out how that works and ends up skipping most of the folders if you don't 3. In mozilla, import mail from outlook express Actual Results: Look at how mozilla threw a duplicate of every folder inside the folder mozilla named '.' Expected Results: It should not duplicate every folder. The help page speaks of a Import module which I should report this as part of, yet the page I use to report this bug with doesn't list that. One of these needs to be changed.
changing component to import -> Cavin
There are some existing bugs about folder names with certain characters causing problems... one I found is 140212.
I just checked in something that should fix this under Bug #219586
