Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; de-DE; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050226 Firefox/1.0.1
Build Identifier: Firefox 1.0

If folders with the name exist (e.g. after importing them from Eudora etc.) you
can specify the exact folder in the filter properties window but the folder used
is random, when a folder with the same name exists.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create 2 Folders for example: /Newsletters and /News/Newsletters
2. Create Filter with action: Move to (click and select) /Newsletters
3. Execute Filter

Actual Results:  
Mail is being moved into /News/Newsletters OR /Newsletters.

Expected Results:  
Mail being moved into /Newsletters, the folder /News/Newsletters being ignored.

Maybe Firefox should work internal with FolderIDs instead of the Folder names. I
could imagine that this also could lead to problems if special characters are used.

you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
