I propose that when these operations fail, the account should automatically fall back to behaving as if "Server supports folders that contain sub-folders and messages" were off. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set "Server supports folders that contain sub-folders and messages" to default setting (true) 2. Create IMAP folder 3. Try to delete it Actual Results: Error message displayed and folder won't delete Expected Results: Account drops back to behaving as if "Server supports folders that contain sub-folders and messages" were false, and deletes the folder in-place.

Statistically, we have found that bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved. Thank you for your help in this matter.
