From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.72 [en] (Win98; U) BuildID: 2000233116 IMAP server directory: /u/tony/MailBox/Sift - in this directory I have multiple mailboxes and subdirectories containing more mailboxes. In "server-advanced" -- Show only subscribed folders and Server supports only... always revert to the selected state. I need them off. Since they were selected I tried subscribing to my mail folders, but File->subscribe only presents me with newsgroups. If I manualy create a .mailboxlist on the mail server side - then I see my mailboxes in a flat space (ie all subdirectory mailboxes show up at top level in the mail folder list) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: I think the description above describes everything needed to reproduce the problem Expected Results: I expected Mozilla IMAP mail to behave exactly like Netscape 4.72 which I am currently using for email. (Note I've used Netscape 4.08 thru the current release with the same IMAP setup without troubles) I expected to see in the mail folder list all my mail folders and subdirectories containing mail folders. /u/tony is my UNIX home directory. The IMAP server is a Solaris 7 server running WU IMAP: telnet ice 143 Connected to ice. Escape character is '^]'. * OK ice IMAP4rev1 v12.264 server ready
Cc: Jefft Jeff, do you think this is dup of bug#28181 which we tried to investigate before?
The image I sent was created by using 4.72 to subscribe to my mail folders, then running Mozilla. Mozilla currently doesn't run with "Show only subscribed folders" unselected -- it always reverts back to the selected state (perhaps I should have put this in a seperate bug report?)
Thanks. That will be more helpful! Jeff, I believe that I logged a bug regrading to IMAP server directory for 5.0 before, I will try to find that bug!!
bug#28089 sounds similar - I expect that a .mailboxlist file is not required if "show only subscribed folders" is unselected - this is the way I use netscapeV4.72 and other IMAP capable mail clients (such as pine, eudora and outlook)
Jeff - do you get this bug?
I'll take it.
Tony, can you try today's build and see if the build fixes your problem? I checked in a fix for bug 20878 which should fix your problem too. I am marking this one fixed. Please reopen it if the problem still exists.
This should be reopened. I tried Build 2000050908 and the folder view is now correct (bug#28181). But without a .mailboxlist file and "subscribe" unchecked in advanced prefs I still cannot see any folders.
Yes. That's why we still have some issues need to investigate on bug 20879
Tony, are you retesting on the migrated profile or new profile? I know that if I testing on the migrated profile, it's working. Bbut if I created new profile, I saw some strang on the folders pane.... Jeff, is this bug can only be tested on the migrated profile?
Karen, I tried both ways (migrated and new profile). In Netscape 4.5+ the .mailboxlist file is only referenced when "Show only subscribed folders" is selected. When its not selected Netscape4.5+ finds all the folders in the server directory by itself. From what I see Mozilla can not find any mail folders in the absense of a .mailboxlist file. Mozilla seems to be operating in a "subscribed" mode only.
Tony, you are right if not using subscription we should list all folders.
Jeff, thanks for your concensus. BTW - Can I assume the subscribe functionality is not implemented yet for IMAP mail, or part of another bug?
I am thinking that we should address the issue to other IMAP subscribe bug...
The subscribe ui is there but not hooked up for imap server. I'll check with sspitzer for how to hook it up.
bug 17795 is the feature bug: subscribe dialog for IMAP....still not implement yet....
Seth, can we dup this against one of your bugs? Since we're doing IMAP subscribe, this bug should just go away.
Based on Jeff & Tony's comments and my verifications on bug 20878, bug 28181. I think this bug already been fixed. bug 17795 is for the IMAP subscribe folders UI implement. I already logged 38943 for tracking "If Mozilla not using subscription -- should list all folders problem." I think Jeff can mark as fixed for this bug now. Please address not using subscription problem on bug 38943. Thanks.
I'll agree that bug#38943 describes the remaining problem I have with IMAP mail. (Not sure where to ask this, but will there be a new Solaris build soon?)
You may post this question on newsgroup for asking this question. Or Lisa, can you answer Tony's question?
Jeff, if you agree for addressing "not using subscription problem" on bug 38943. Please mark this bug as fixed, so I can verify this bug then.
Mass moving M16 to M17 - look for nsbeta2 before anything else.
Mark as fixed. The rest of the problem is addressed by the other bug.
Marking verified based on Jeff, Tony comments & bug 20878 verification.
tony - not sure about Solaris builds. You may want to ask in builds newsgroup. Thanks.
