Description Vlado Potisk 2006-01-21 12:14:43 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
It is not possible to create a new email folder using the IMAP protocol on a dovecot powered server.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. right-click on an IMAP account and choose the "New subfolder" function
2. type in some folder name and click OK

Actual Results:  A long error message is displayed:
- - - - -
Error while creating a folder.
Could Not Create Folder
An attempt to create the requested folder failed.
- - - - -

Expected Results:  New email folder should have been created

Additional info:

I set the bug severity to high, because new users get only the inbox folder to handle all their mail.

This KDE bug report seems to describe the problem:
tcpdump -A port imap command shows that a dot is prepended to the folder name:
CREATE ".newfolder"

it's fixed in kdepim-3.5.2, which is available in the FC5 update. Thanks for
