Reassign to putterman, cc to m_kato@ga2.so-net.ne.jp.

Which non-ascii name (Japanese, French)? Was this tested on US system or 
Japanese Windows?

Updating this bug as of ** 7/14/2000 Win32 build **.

I cannot delete Japanese-name folders on Japanese Windows
with the above build. I'm going to raise the severity of
this bug.
Severity: normal → critical

Per i18n/mail triage meeting, this bug is now
marked as nsbeta3-.
However, we do need more info of the following kind:

1. Can we rename these undeletable folders?
2. If renaming is successful (into ASCII names),
   can we then delete such folders.
3. Can we create new folders with non-ASCII names

These questions are of higher priority than this problem.
Depending on the results of further investigation, we may
resubmit this bug for reconsideration.

Please leave marked as [nsbeta3-] and remove Need Info. Kat supplied the
information we needed.

Removing folders is a very basic operation even for novice users.  The 
workaround to rename to ASCII and then delete seems a bear for a basic feature.
We could live with this for PR3, but I'd hate to RTM 6.0 like this!

Bob - The mail5 team has a huge number of bugs on their plate to correct for
PR3. When meeting with them, we selected the top international bugs we felt
needed to be addressed given their bug budget.  Unfortunately, when we made the
decision to minus (-) this one, there were other bugs that we felt had higher
frequency of occurence and severity.

These were tough calls to make, but we are operating on a date driven schedule
and have to hit zarro bugs by 09.15.00. I hope you can understand if this one
doesn't get fixed.
