Build: 2000050412 win32 and linux

With new created profile, the Japanese IMAP folder name shows as utf7 strings
on the "Move/Copy Message" folder destination menu. After restart of the
application, the folder name displays alright on the second time.
It might be a dup of bug 30965. But since the problem shows in the different 
place, I filed as a seperate one. Please mark it as a dup if it is.

Steps of reproduce.
1. Have some Japanese folder in your IMAP account.
2. Create a new profile and start Netscape 6 with it.
3. Select Tasks | Mail and connect the messengerto your IMAP account.
4. Highlight one mail in INBOX and select Message | Move Message or Copy Message
   you'll see the Japanese IMAP folder is displayed as utf7 strings on the
   folder destination menu.

I can't reproduce this problem on a win98 2000-08-02-05 build w/ the 07-29-04 JA
lang pack installed.

After the folder is renamed, it shows as a utf7 string until mail is restarted. 
This is probably caused by the same bug that Kat has filed.

Momoi san, now I have no environment for access IMAP server since I stay in 
Hottel now :-)
So I will be not able to fix until I am back to my home (feb 2000)...

NHotta - Should this be reassign to Kato-san?

What's the user impact?

Does this still happen? If so, please attach a screen shot of the problem.

It doesn't happen with a new profile anymore.
But once the folder is renamed, it appears in utf7 string on the menu. 
And this problem is already addressed in bug 70517.
Resolved this bug as wfm.
