If I want to change the name of a email file, when I press on the validate button, it generates a freeze. I precise that it only happens with email files concerned by existing mail filtering instructions. The only way for me to get out the freeze, is to press ont the cancel button. But the most strange is that after having canceled out, the previous change of the name seems yet to have been properly registred. Bizarre... Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. choose any mail file on the left pannel 2. right clic an choose file property 3. In the box that opens, choose general information tab, and enter the new name 4. clic on OK and the freeze begins Actual Results: Box freeze Expected Results: Just validate the change and it indicates after, in a seperate message box, that the filters concerned have been updated. This happens only on my Mac, no problem on my PC (W2K & XP)and I also noticed that it happens only if there are existing mail filtering instructions in place in that precise file.
I think reporter is actually talking about mail /folders/, not files. Maluski, what kind of a folder is it? (Inbox, custom folder created by you, etc.) What type of account is it? POP/IMAP? Are you renaming an IMAP folder?
Summary: Freeze when trying to change the name of a email file → Freeze when trying to change the name of a mail folder
Oups ! sorry for my english, yes, the exact word is actually folders. It concerns all the custom folders I created but, as I said before, the problem appears only if the folder is concerned by a filtering instruction. (My filters are very simple, just to put a mail directly in one of my created folders). All my accounts are POP types. I do not use Imap.
Joe, does this sound familiar at all? MALUSKI, Is the filter rule "move to" <folder name>? do you see anything in Tools|Error Console? can you reproduce this using version 3? (backup your profile before using)

(In reply to comment #3) > Joe, does this sound familiar at all? > Have not heard of any similar reports. The OP does state that this is a Mac only report, so no help here to reproduce.
MALUSKI, Is the filter rule "move to" <folder name>? do you see anything in Tools|Error Console? can you reproduce this using version 3.1?
