Description

7 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:10.0.2) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/10.0.2
Build ID: 20120215223356

Steps to reproduce:

1. Select IMAP account profile left pane (I have multiple IMAP/POP accounts in TB)
2. Right-click on profile, select New Folder
3. Fill in name "Moving"
4. Click Create Folder


Actual results:

The folder created appears under the #shared folder (#shared/Discards/#shared/Moving) for some reason instead of the top level. The #shared folder was explicitly NOT highlighted. For the IMAP account in question it has 38 folders.



Expected results:

The new (IMAP) folder should have been created as a top level private folder for the account. Not a shared folder. This appears to be a regression. 

The work-around was to ssh to the user account, create the file/folder, then in TB subscribe to the folder.

WFM. I can create top-level folders on my IMAP server.

Can we get an imap log when you reproduce the error ? (see https://wiki.mozilla.org/MailNews:Logging for getting the log)

Same problem as bug 720911? See also bug 697789.
See also bug 540378, if non-personal namespace(shared/public namespace, other users namespace) is used.

Same problem encountered here with thunderbird 45.6.0 with dovecot 1:2.2.13

Attached is an imap log trace. You'll see that I tried to create AAA at the root, and it was tentatively created in #shared/mail.C770_Demonstrateur.AAA which already exists (from a precedent try).

The creation of a root folder worked flawlessly from another MUA (claws mail for example)
