User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:184.108.40.206) Gecko/20100722 Firefox/3.6.8 Build Identifier: 3.1.2 I have a series of folders that were imported from Eufora and appear under the folder Local folders\Eudora import. If I right click on a folder underneath "Eudora import" and select "delete" Thunderbird gives me the message "Are you sure you want to delete the folder". If I select "Delete folder" I get the Alert "A folder with that name already exists". Something wrong here ... Reproducible: Always
Are the folder still present on disk in your profile ? Anything in Tools -> Error console ?
Alun, please, could you answer to comment #1?

Yes, the folders are still present on my hard drive as * and *.msf files (eg files called "pending" and "pending.msf")
I see the exact same problem as reported by Alun. I'm running Thunderbird 6.0.2 on Windows 7 Ultimate. Workaround is to first rename the folder (to, say, 'Eudora Import XXX'). Afterwards, "Delete" will work. Notice however that 'Local Folders' -> 'Trash' will then contain *both* 'Eudora Import' and 'Eudora Import XXX'!
TB v. 52.9.1 on W10. I get the a similar problem with a mail folder structure imported from Outlook Express. The workaround with renaming the folder helps. Also I can delete any folder as long as it has no subfolders.
Actually, renaming the folder did not work correctly. Only some subdirectories were deleted. Only after TB-restart, I could delete the top level folder together with the rest of its subfolders.
