Description User image David J. Marcus 2007-07-19 07:13:59 PDT
User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 1.0.3705; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; InfoPath.1)
Build Identifier: (20070604)

I have, by now, a few local subfolders that I cannot delete.

When I try to delete the file, I get the prompt to confirm the delete but nothing happens when I OK the delete. The subfolder remains.

I tried to compact the folder, its parent, and in fact all the Local Folders but I still can't delete the folder.

Reproducible: Always

Occurred on XP SP2 while testing Shredder Alpha 1 build 1, with build ID
version 3.0a1 (2008050715).

I tried deleting a subfolder I created under Inbox, but it still appeared. I then clicked on the message name again. An error showed up, see screenshot. I had to restart Thunderbird to make the subfolders that previously deleted, disappear.

Is this general or front end?
