I´ve got three accounts in mozilla. A Pop3 Account, the local folders and the IMAP account. I want to store all Unsent Mails und Sent Mails etc. on my local account. No problem until here, but I do not want to use the folders Send, Unsent Messages and so on. They´re without function as of I decided to place all msgs on my local folders account. After deleting them, Mozilla creates them again. Please provide a function to supress this behavour.
cc: jglick - Jennifer, weren't you talking about this in another bug report?
Bug #33235 Inbox (all accounts) and Trash (for POP and IMAP "move to Trash" mode) can't be deleted. Drafts, Templates, Stationery (Local or on Server) can't be deleted ONLY if the "Copies and Folders" Pref is set to save to one of these folders. Otherwise, they can be deleted and shouldn't be recreated.
perhaps the problem is, that it´s not possible using the ui to delete folders at the moment - I deleted them manually... then they´ll be created agagin

Ever confirmed: true
I checked bug status again, and it is even not possible to manually delete folders with no functions assigned (in prefs), they´ll be created again, I tried to delete all folders instead of inbox and trash on my pop3 account because I moved all folders to my local account, they had been created again

Confirmed (on 1.2b): Create a POP3 account. Inbox, Drafts, Templates, Sent and Trash are created. Edit Preferences, under Copies & Folders. Set Drafts, Templates and Sent to Local Folders. Can now delete them from the account. Close all Mozilla apps. Reopen. Folders have been recreated!
For me it looks like this is a dupe of Bug 197228 (or vice versa).
