IMAP offline store only working in subfolders after deleting panacea
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:26.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/26.0 (Beta/Release) Build ID: 20131206152142 Steps to reproduce: Following was done tying to repair problem of bug 958815: - IMAP accounts folders are enabled for offline reading; for each *.msf file there is a Mbox file in the profile. - Set TB to offline and close. - Delete panacea.dat. - Restart TB to check folder collapsing state. - Collapse and expand some folders. - Restart TB again to check folder collapsing state. --> All IMAP folders except Inbox are disapeared. All Mbox files in root folder of IMAP account were deleted, but not in subfolders. INBOX.msf was renamed to INBOX-1.msf and new tiny INBOX.msf was created. Other *.msf files in root folder of IMAP account remained unchanged. - Set TB to online and close immediately. - Delete panacea.dat + INBOX.msf and rename INBOX-1.msf to INBOX.msf. - Restart TB again. *** Hopefully I did not miss any step. *** Actual results: --> Mbox files in IMAP root folder are still missing. - Click on big mail in Inbox message list to load mail body. --> Progress bar indicates download of mail, mail body is displayed after some sec. INBOX Mbox file is still missing. - Click on big mail in subfolder message list. --> No activity in progress bar; Offline store is still functional in subfolder. - From elsewhere send test mail to IMAP account. --> INBOX Mbox file is created, but very small, so only new mail is held in offline store. Expected results: After restart of TB with missing Mbox files and deleted panacea.dat, mail bodies of purged offline Mboxes should be automatically downloaded again from server.
