In folder with 6 messages it works, but in folder with for example 200+ messages
it doesn't work.

Also is bad that Message->Mark->All Read is grayed if no message selected 'coz
it should work with all messages in the folder IMHO - no matter if I have
selected any message or not.

Delete folder also sometimes works, sometimes not. I have created about 5
accounts and imported all messages from Outlook Express. Now I copied imported
folders to the corresponding accounts and I want to delete some folders . I
select folder, choose Delete from popup-menu, press OK to the confirmation and
nothing happens. Also if I try to delete a single message, nothing happens.
Maybe it is because this account doesn't have "Trash" folder (it completely
disappeared when I did "Empty trash" few minutes ago)? Dunno.

select all is a dup of bug 82770

mark all read is a dup of bug 73741

updating summary line with the remaining problem.

reporter: what is the build id you are seeing the problems on?
Summary: Select All doesn't work for me, All Read problem and not deleting folder → trouble deleting imported folder

Additional Questions:

- How many accounts are configured in Outlook Express, 5?
- What type of accounts are configured in Outlook Express, POP?
- In Mozilla are you using a new profile or migrated from 4.7?
- Did you create new accounts in Mozilla, if so then how many and what type 
(i.e. POP)?
- I wonder how your trash folder was removed? Do you remember what you were 
doing prior to it disappearing?

- there are 5 POP3 accounts
- they are configured as standard POP3 accounts, all settings are default 
(except pop3 server, login, password and checked "Leave mail on server" in 4 of 
5 accounts)
- Mozilla was clean instalation
- I didn't created any accounts in Mozilla, all was imported from OE
- I selected Trash folder and choosed "Empty trash" from popup menu. My Trash 
folder from this account dissapeared and i could not delete any mails/folders 
on this account. When I restarted Mozilla, "Trash" folder was on the right 
place and deleting mails/folders worked again. Maybe will be interesting to say 
that I was removing mailing lists folders so there were about 2 folders (with 
6k and 9k messages, almost all unread) and about 200 messages (almost all read) 
in trashcan when I tried to empty it. But I could repeat the bug for another 
time (I moved some other folders to the trash and after "emptying" it 
dissapeared again.

My build was the last Win32 version available on 2001-06-12 (I am not at work 
now, I will check it and report tomorrow).

Lubor, are you still seeing this problem with current builds (0.9.3 Milestone or
a more recent nightly build)?
