Attached file Imap log
1. Log into a test email account on (i.e. test02, test03 etc).
2. Write an email to another test user: test04 for example
3. Click Send.

= Expected =
The Sent folder will be created and the mail will be sent.

= Actual = 
The Sent folder is not created, the UI hangs forever stating that it is "Copying to Sent Folder".  However the IMAP logs appears to show that permission was denied to create the sent folder.  So, an error should have been thrown to the user instead of the unending hang.

- silent fail: Bug 397429 - after converting pop account to use global inbox, drafts/templates/sent folder account prefs point to non-existant folders, those actions silently fail
- hang: Bug 382912 - Hang on "Copying message to Sent folder" when folder create fails - case sensitivity?
