Using aug24 commercial build When doing a search for mail messages on an IMAP account using the account level/server as the search scope, the search will receive one or more errors "mailbox doesn't exist" but the search will continue and matching results will be displayed in the results pane. Results are from folders other than the INBOX, so I know it got past the main inbox folder. My steps: 1. At mail window, logged into my main IMAP account. This account has many top and sublevel folders. 2. I mailed myself a new message with a subject which I knew would be unique (since we don't show the location column in search results with 6.0), got the message and filed it into a top level folder other than the INBOX. 3. I selected the account level in the folder pane, then Search|Search Mail/News Messages. Search dialog opens with account level selected. 4. I initiated a search - subject, contains - and specified the unique subject in the message I just filed. Note: I left "search subfolders" checkbox disabled, but enabled or disabled doesn't make any difference for this bug. 5. Recieved an alert something like "command failed: mailbox doesn't exist" and clicked OK to the alert. Received another mailbox doesn't exist alert, OK'd that dialog. Note: In the various tries I've done over different profiles, I've seen anywhere from one to three alert dialogs appear. 6. Search result pane displays the (correct) matching message. Result: Command failed alert(s) display, but when alert OK'd the search continues.
Oh, found this while verifying bug 44379...

nominating beta3 -- not good to show alerts to user in this case.
sorry, this one actually IS david's bug, I believe :)

Do you have any folders that are subscribed to but don't exist? I believe 4.x would show the same errors if you tried to search such a folder.

hard choice, but - per mail triage. Put this on the mail6 category for suseng to help.
Sorry for the extra email. Removing mail6 keyword.
adding mail3 keyword

I don't think this bug is that important at all - 4.x had the same problem, and the user does have folders subscribed that don't exist, not a common situation. Clearing status whiteboard so it won't show up on my queries.

does this require being subscribed to a folder that no longer exists? If not, WFM. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20060714 SeaMonkey/1.5a
