Hi! I have just changed from Netscape 4.8 to Mozilla 1.1 (Linux-2.4.19) and found the following Bug in the Mail-Client part of the software: I cannot move a couple of mails from a subfolder of my IMAP INBOX (Cyrus Server) to a folder in my Local Folders. It's possible to move/copy them "mail by mail", i. e. just only one mail per step. But if I select more than one mail or even all to be moved/copied just *nothing* happens. This problem only occurs moving from IMAP *sub*folders of my INBOX, if I move directly from the INBOX itself, then it works. But I have server mail-filtering rules on the Cyrus-Server and hence lots of mails arrive in subfolders of the IMAP INBOX, not in the INBOX. This is quite a severe problem for me, that's why I gave it severity "major" above, not only "normal". OK? Could you please look at it and try to fix at as soon as possible? If you have more questions or if you need screenshots or more details, please let me know. Thanks a lot! BR Tino Lange
20020912 trunk build on Windows NT The same problem happened to me.

I have also observed this problem in Mozilla 1.1 and Netscape 7.0 under Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows NT 4.0. Note that the problem did not exist with Mozilla 0.99.

I see something similar with 1.1 and 1.2b since our imap server switched and all imap folders are subfolders of Inbox: when I try to select multiple messages from a subfolder and file them to a local folder, the local folder takes on a large value as the size (somthing like -1 converted to 32bit unsigned) but with zero contents, and the .msf file disappears. I then have to manually remove the local folder and restart mozilla. This is on Linux RedHat 7.0.
I will look at this this weekend, and I hope, fix it.
well, duh, this doesn't work for any imap server - in other words, copying multiple imap msgs to a local folder seems to be broken. So, as near as I can tell, it doesn't have anything to do with hierarchy delimiters. I'll investigate.
ah, never mind - I made a change to attempt to fix this, and it broke it for all imap servers :-) I think the correct fix is to fix CreateCanonicalSourceFolderPathString to return the canonical path, and fix the two places that expect the server path to use CreateServerSourceFolderPathString.
Created attachment 105842 [details] [diff] [review] proposed fix OK, I went with the simpler fix - just make GetURI return the canonical format uri, like it should.
Cavin, can I get an r=? thx.
