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