IMAP: Folder containing subfolders is not displayed/loaded
An IMAP folder containing 5 subfolders (and no messages in that level) is not displayed. The subfolders themselves contain messages. "Normal" folders at the root of the IMAP directory are loaded and displayed correctly. prefs.js was edited by hand to: user_pref("mail.server.server3.type", "imap"); user_pref("mail.server.server3.hostname", "mail1.uibk.ac.at"); user_pref("mail.server.server3.userName", "xxx"); The same problem occurred when the prefs were migrated with "apprunner -installer". Build: nightly 1999092909, and earlier ones Platform: WinNT SP5 (German), 128MB RAM
Additional information: After migrating another 4.7 profile to Mozilla I restarted Mozilla with my first profile and found Privat.sbd in the Messanger folder listing ("Privat" being the name of the folder containing subfolders). Clicking on it and entering the IMAP-password led to the following warning: "The current command did not succeed. The mail server responded: nSELECT failed: Can't ope mailbox Privat.sbd: no such mailbox". However the folder is here and I see it using Netscape 4.x (or Pine).
In 4.x, are all your folders subscribed to? See http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7511
The parent folder as well as the child folders are all subscribed in 4.x. I tried to delete mozregistry and user50 directories and migrate profile again after verifying, it gives the same (negative) result. Just a thought: I think it's not very intuitive for many-to-come "normal users" not to migrate non-subscribed IMAP-folders that they see in 4.x
General case works for me. If there's some secondary problem, it can wait until after B1.
Have you tried this recently? We've fixed a couple bugs in this area.
Right now I can't even access any of my IMAP folders (posted bug 23622).
Here is my .mailboxlist-File from the IMAP-Server: INBOX Computer Main Sent Trash NATWI-News WWWAdmin UIBK Privat/ Privat/Menschen Privat/Firmen Privat/SciFi Privat/Musik Subfolders of Privat were never displayed with this file (actually recent builds of Mozilla crashed, see Bug #23312, #23622). I manually removed the slash from the line Privat/ and the subfolders and their content were displayed nicely. Here is the first line of my imap-log: 172[19afd30]: mail1.uibk.ac.at:NA:CreateNewLineFromSocket: * OK mail1.uibk.ac.at IMAP4rev1 v12.258 server ready So this is probably a mailserver-specific problem as well.

Ops, I just saw, the folder "Privat" was subscribed all the time. But you said 2000-01-12 00:30, you can see the folders. Feel free to reopen, if the problem still persists.
