Summary: users should be able to create ">" on Netscape Messaging Server → Users should be able to create ">" on Netscape Messaging Server
This is probably related to bug 22474, which is showing the truncation of a ">" character.

No, it's just that we're escaping the new folder name when we create the url, but not unescaping it when we pull it out of the url. I'm not sure if the fix is to not escape the folder name at all, or to unescape when we pull it out.

Actually, I take it back. '>' is used internally as the IMAP_URL_TOKEN_SEPARATOR. I.e, when we create an imap url, we use the '>' character to separate parts of the url. So when we're parsing the url, we get confused by '>' as part of a folder name. 4.5 has this same problem, as near as I can tell, but no one has noticed, as far as I can tell.

karen - can you confirm that 4.x has the same problem? Thanks.

Does the "Netscape Messaging Server" still exists?
server products don't go away just because their vendors do. that said this server probably migrated via iplanet to sun(one).
