add namespace support for "Copies & Folders" directory settings in preference
Now, mozilla just let you to set the fixed directories for "Mail & Newsgroup Account Settings"->"Copies & Folders" preference, such as "Sent", "Drafts", etc. We should support namespace settings for these folders. And the name of these folder should be able to be changed by user.
The special folders should always be in the Personal namespace.
This bug makes it impossible to use Mozilla's IMAP with the Courier IMAP server, which requires proper namespace support.
Since we can defaultly use the personal namespace as the namespace for the directories "Sent", "Drafts" and "Templates", this bug is just an enhancement now. Degrade the severity to enhancement. See http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=27002#c69.

Hi,henry, I know what you mean of this bug. But I have a quetion not sure. When we are doing works on this bug(add namespace selection of special folders), we may need consider the change of special folders' namespaces. If a user select 'INBOX.aaa' as their namespace now, and he change the namespace to 'INBOX.bbb' later. This will let mozilla set special folder flags to new folders. And so we will keeps two special folders then. This is because mozilla only set special folder flags on certern folders and after we use the folder for the first time, the folder will be created and work as a special one. So if we change special folders' namespace, mozilla will create new folder as special folders, still keeping the old ones(I have meet this problem, I always have two Drafts in my account). This will make user confused. Need your confirm. philip
I believe this works fine now - I think we should just close this bug as wfm.
