User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826 Attempted to import my Netscape 4.79 mail files to Mozilla. Fails every time. Get the following error message: "An error occurred importing mail from Communicator 4.x Unable to create folder to import mail into." Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start the Mozilla Mail client. 2. Select: Tools/Import 3. Check "Mail" radio button, then click "Next" button. 4. Select "Communicator 4.x" in the list box (other choices are Eudora, Outlook, and Outlook Express)and click Next button. 5. Get list of Profiles. I have four profiles labeled respectively: Cindy's Verizon, Cindy's Connect.net, Skips Connectnet, & Skips Verizon. I select Skip's Verizon for import and click the OK button. 6. The error message "Unable to create folder" appears as described in details. 7. I click "Finish". No mail is imported. Actual Results: No mail files were imported to Mozilla. Mozilla still appeared stable and I was able to continue using it. However no mail files were imported. Expected Results: All of my mail files (several hundred megabytes) should have been imported into Mozilla mail, and should have appeared in the mail client mail window. Don't want to move to Mozilla mail and start putting mail into the Mozilla folders until the import is fixed. I expect that the import feature does not append to existing mail in the Mozilla folders, but would overwrite or delete the existing mail in the folders. After the import, I would loose all of the mail I received between my move and the import step. This prevents me (and probably many Netscape 4.7 users) from moving to Mozilla.
