I've verified this bug with the dovecot 2 server and with gmail IMAP access. If you try to subscribe to the mailbox <test> you get the error message that the server could not find the mailbox "<test". It looks like the > sign is not correctly escaped and somehow interpreted as part of an IMAP command. If you try to subscribe to <test>test you also get the error message that mailbox "<test" does not exist. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a folder called <test> with another IMAP client. 2. Try to subscribe to this folder with Thunderbird. Actual Results: not subscribed to the folder Expected Results: subscribed to the folder
Can you provide an imap log of this when you try ? (see https://wiki.mozilla.org/MailNews:Logging )

This is a dup of a very old bug, I believe.
Bug 538942 is problem upon SELECT after next to XLIST(other mailer subscribed). > * XLIST (\Noselect \HasChildren) "/" "<script>alert('XSS')<" Setting dependency instead of duping, to keep SUBSCRIBE case, although basically dup.
