User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:15.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/15.0.1 Build ID: 20120907231657 Steps to reproduce: Hi, running in problems with KMail I decided to switch to dovecot-imap & thunderbird on my kubuntu 12.04 64 bit (so I can read my imap-folder-mails with KMail again if it gets more stable) What I did: - I wrote a python script to convert my KMail mails folder to a thunderbird mailfolder (directory tree containing mbox files and *.sbd folders) - I created a fake pop mail account in thunderbird and imported the whole mail-structure (i just copied it) - I create a local imap account ( so I have a ~/Maildir dovecot folder in my user dir) - In /etc/dovecot: 1. /etc/dovecot/10-mail.conf (line 10) I set: mail_location = maildir:~/Maildir:LAYOUT=fs 2. /etc/dovecot/20-imap.conf (line 57) I set: imap_client_workarounds = tb-extra-mailbox-sep Now I want to copy the whole mailstructure from my imported fake pop mailfolder to the dovecot imap folder. Actual results: What happens: Lets say my source structure is mailfolder1 + mail1 + mail2 + subMailFolder2 + mail1-in-subMailFolder2 + mail2-in-subMailFolder2 + subSubMailFolder3 + mail1-in-subMailFolder3 + mail2-in-subMailFolder3 I thunderbird (version 15) I drag and drop my mailFolder1 to the imap folder and I get: mailfolder1 + mail1 + mail2 + subMailFolder2 + subSubMailFolder3 as you See only the mails of the TOP folder are copied. All subfolders are created but they contain NO MAILS. Expected results: The imap folders subMailFolder2 and subSubMailFolder3 should contain their mails !
Summary: thunderbird does not copy a pop tree-structure to an imap folder to dovecot imap → thunderbird does not copy a pop tree-structure to an imap folder in dovecot
Can we get imap logs to see what's going on ? (https://wiki.mozilla.org/MailNews:Logging)
