User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; Q312461; .NET CLR 1.0.3705; .NET CLR 1.1.4322) Build Identifier: Thunderbird 0.1 (20030727) When setting up an account, if you neglect to add the trailing "/", any function that requires movement of a message from one folder to another will fail. The error will read " Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Tools -> Account Settings -> Server Settings -> Advanced -> IMAP server directory 2. Enter IMAP directory without trailing "/" 3. Save settings and restart application 4. Attempt action which moves a message from one folder to another, ie. deleting it. 5. Program will generate error: The current command did not succeed. The mail server responded: [TRYCREATE] UID COPY Failed: No such destination mailbox. Actual Results: Program generates error. Expected Results: Program should have intelligence added to assume that if a trailing "/" isn't present that it should implicitly place one.
Just ran into this with the 0.1 release! Shockingly, it wasn't broken in the previous release I was using, which I thought was the 0.1 cadidate. Oh well. I's say it's not really 'minor' since I just switched builds only to find it completely failed to access any of my IMAP folders! (--> normal) Updating summary, since this affects all IMAP folders.
Severity: minor → normal
OS: MacOS X → All
Summary: Trash will not work if trailing "/" is not appended to imap server directory → IMAP folders (e.g. Trash) will not work without trailing "/" in prefs

Created attachment 130683 [details] [diff] [review] add special folder handling This code fixes the case where we're trying to save to the sent folder or drafts, and the online dir is the same as the personal namespace. We used to create a folder called INBOX.INBOX.Sent which caused some strange problems.

Comment on attachment 130664 [details] [diff] [review] proposed fix r/sr/a=sspitzer shouldn't (PL_strlen(ns->GetPrefix()) != 0) just be (strlen(ns->GetPrefix())
fix checked in - I was getting a lot of dups filed on this, not to mention IM's :-)
