User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312 Eudora allows folder and mailbox names to contain slashes (/). Importing those into Mozilla does not work. Specifically, if the mailbox name has a slash somewhere in the middle, the import will: (a) create an empty folder in Mozilla, using that part of the Eudora name that came after the slash; (b) report (in the summary at the end) that it was unable to import the folder. Much worse, however, is if the Eudora name *starts* with a slash. In this case, the Mozilla import hangs, eating up more and more virtual memory until the system is driven to its knees. You have to kill Mozilla manually to get out of this. After restarting Mozilla, there is folder whose name is a hexadecimal value in the place where the import should be. Attempting to delete this folder also causes Mozilla to hang and eat VM until you kill it. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. In Eudora, create a mailbox with a name starting with a slash. 2. Import from Eudora to Mozilla. Actual Results: Mozilla stopped partway through the import process, and became unresponsive. The disk continued to run wildly, and task manager showed that memory usage by Mozilla was growing rapidly and monotonically. After waiting for 30 minutes of this, I killed it. Expected Results: Preferred: import the folder with the name intact. (Slash is a useful character in folder and mailbox names.) Failing that: import the folder with the slash omitted from the name. At a minimum: don't hang.
