When I set my Sent folder to a specific IMAP folder in the "Copies & Folders" tab of Mozilla, that folder isn't displayed with the special "Sent" icon. Ditto for "Drafts" and "Templates". "Trash" is displayed correctly. This is with 1.0RC3 (build 2002052309). This seems similar, but not identical, to bug 132927.
As this works correctly with my IMAP account at web.de (no namespace advertised there and folders do not appear under the inbox like my main cyrus IMAP server account where this bug does occur) I think this is part of bug #27002. The reason is the special folders are not being found is because of namespace and server directory issues.
Bug #132927 has nothing to do with this. That bug talks about new icons for shared folders. You're talking about the standard sent,draft and templates folder. That has to do like I said with the namespace issues in bug #27002 and bug #105385.
It's not a matter of it not finding the folders correctly; I've configured them manually, and still the icons don't show up. Maybe it is the same bug; if it starts working when those two are fixed, I'll mark this WFM.
This bug does exist. Mark new and change platform, OS to all. The reason for this bug is the wrong interpreting of the canonical URI of these specific folders. Let me take care of this one, add Seth to CC list.
Here is a workaround for those who really love this function. :-) Method 1: Set the 'IMAP Server Directory' advanced setting to 'INBOX'(for Cyrus and Courier IMAP server) or something like that Method 2: Set the 'Copies & Folders' to other and select the folder See also: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=27002#c106
Is there somthing done on this bug, or is a workaround seen as satisfactory? Apart from my opinion that it is not, since there is a junk-folder this workaround does not work anymore, as when it is applied one gains the drafts etc. icons but loses the junk-icon.
