Description

9 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.0.1) Gecko/2008070208 Firefox/3.0.1
Build Identifier: Shredder version 3.0a2pre (2008072003)

Account settings "Keep message drafts in: Other-drafts" and "Keep message templates in: Other-Templates" does not create folders for other pop3 accounts but creates them for Gmail POP3 accounts

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a new profile and a new mail account with POP3 (not Gmail).
2.Go to account setting and make sure you have "Keep message drafts in: Other-Drafts" and Keep message templates in: Other-Templates" selected 
3.Compose a new message and save without sending, you can also save as template
4.Saved Messages appear in "Local Folders" "Drafts"/"Templates" folder instead of a new folder for "Drafts"/"Templates" under account
5.Setup a Gmail POP3 account
6.Use default settings
7.Compose a new message and save as draft or template
8.A new folder for drafts and templates under the Gmail account folder is created.

Actual Results:  
For POP3 accounts, other than Gmail, no folders gets created to store drafts and templates even if you have a drafts folder on server.

Expected Results:  
When saving a draft or template for accounts, if a draft or template folder is not present, one is created.

After creating a folder called "Drafts" and "Templates" manually, all drafts and templates are saved in the appropriate folder under the account.
can you reproduce still on latest trunk?
iirc bug 449482 claims a similar sort of issue for imap.

This bug is no longer present in latest trunk.

Drafts folder dropdown now includes listing of top level accounts.

Closing.
