User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 Eudora allows you to give your folders names that are not legal filenames, such as "Servlet / JSP". Eudora saves the folder on disk without the illegal character (it just leaves it out, ie "Servlet JSP.fol") but places the full name of the folder in the binary .toc file. To successfully import the folder into Mozilla Mail, you need to open the .toc file and change the name of the mailbox to not include any characters that can't be part of a filename. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create Eudora folder with a slash (/) in the name 2. Try to import the folder into Mozilla 3. Actual Results: Import fails, Mozilla gives error message saying it can't create the file on disk. Expected Results: Mozilla should recognize that the folder name contains illegal characters and rename it, perhaps by just leaving out the illegal characters and using the name Eudora used.
reporter, is this dupe of bug 131013?
yes; sorry I didn't catch 131013 when I was looking for previously filed bugs. It looks like the this is a little different (I saw a different error message) and there's a different workaround (edit the Eudora .toc file), but it sounds like the same underlying problem.
Dupe as per comment #2 *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 131013 ***
