Build 1999062208M8 for Win32/NT4, Linux/Redhat 5.2. The Mac build wasn't working on 6/22 but duplicated the problem in the 1999061908M7 build. Subfolders in an IMAP account can appear duplicated. POP accounts do not have this problem. Steps to Reproduce: 1. With 4.6 create a parent folder called "Folder1". 2. Under the parent folder create subfolders "FolderA", "FolderB" and "FolderC". so the structure looks like this with each folder containing 1 message: Folder1 FolderA FolderB FolderC 3. Exit out of 4.6 and run "apprunner -mail" 4. Open Folder1 and the 3 subfolders appear as expected. Explorer shows the msf files being created for the three subfolders. Notice the messages are in the correct folder. 5. Exit the application and restart "apprunner -mail". 6. Open Folder1 and the 3 subfolders are duplicated. Each subfolder includes the correct message. There are no extra msf files showing in Explorer: Folder1 FolderA FolderB FolderC FolderA FolderB FolderC 7. Exit out and restart "apprunner -mail" and the subfolders are still duplicated. Atleast they do not appear in triplicate. 8. If the parent folder is collapsed and expanded then the subfolders are displayed normally and remain that way throughout rest of the mail session. Note: Scurtis looked at the IMAP log to see if anything was unnecessarily repeating at the time the apparent duplication took place. It wasn't.
Reassign to alecf for M8. cc putterman.
hmm.. I think this is mscott's arena...but it might just be the tree. scottip, have there been any changes to the tree widget that would cause this? (you are pretty up to date on this stuff)
I don't think the tree widget would cause this, but I'll try to look into that.
The build date nbaca was using was 6/22 so it doesn't include the tree widget landing. So I don't think the tree widget changes could be causing this.
Reassigning to jefft because I think he's working on this. This is all in IMAP code. I don't know why this only happens to the subfolders of a top level folder, but this is what is happening. The first time through GetTargets is asking you to create subfolders and so you look on this disk and create my 3 folders. Then when I double click on the folder with the subfolders, NS_IMETHODIMP nsImapMailFolder::PossibleImapMailbox( nsIImapProtocol* aProtocol, mailbox_spec* aSpec) gets called. This also calls CreateSubfolders and readds the same three folders.
I'm not seeing this - is it still happening?

This seems went away. Must be rdf problem. Marking it works for me.
Build 1999070208M8: Win32/NT4 The same problem is occuring on my system. Using IMAP test accounts for qatest22 and qatest33.
Try to delete your old *.msf files and test on today's build if there is one. Reopen the bug if you can still reproduce the problem. Thanks,
Build 1999070608M8: Win32/NT4 I deleted the msf files in the IMAP test accounts for qatest33 and qatest22. Launched Messenger, opened the folders that include subfolders (A, B and C) and it looks ok. Exited out of the apprunner.exe, restarted apprunner.exe, started Messenger expanded the folders that include subfolders and now they appear duplicated (A,B,C then A,B,C again).
Moving to M9...

I'm taking this one - it's bugging me, and I think there's something weird going on here.

verified fixed with builds 1999081608
