Description

12 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20061010 Firefox/2.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20061010 Firefox/2.0

Thunderbird version: version 1.5.0.8 (20061025)

When coping from one IMap server to another it is not possible to copy a folder which only contains subfolders (no mails). After the copy action the toplevel directory is created but nothing seems to happen. If however now a mail is copied into the top level source folder the copy appears to continue as though nothing was wrong.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect to two different imap servers
2. create a folder and a sub folder
3. copy a message into the subfolder
4. copy (drag and drop) the top level folder from the source server to the destination server
Actual Results:  
Toplevel folder is created - no sub folders are copied.

Expected Results:  
Toplevel folder and subfolder are expected.

Both IMAP Servers running on Linus (SUSE) and with Cyrus IMAP.

WFM on Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20061121 Thunderbird/2.0b1pre ID:2006112103

I have a feeling this was fixed at some point. Can you try a build from
