Thunderbird can't create a folder named "F7->F8"
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:37 EDT
Description of problem:
I tried to create a new thunderbird IMAP folder , called "F7->F8" under the main
IMAP folder, but this new folder is made with the name "F7-". The same happens
when renaming a folder to "F7->F8".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.select some IMAP folder, -> Rename
3.enter F7->F8 for new folder name
the new folder is called F7-
The new folder is called F7->F8
Note for me -- find out whether this is allowed as IMAP folder name.
Yes, it is.
At this point, we're going to only be taking security fixes and major stability
fixes into this release of Fedora. However, we still want to ensure the bug is
fixed in the next version. We'd appreciate if you could test with the latest
version of Thunderbird (184.108.40.206) now available for your distribution and
provide feedback as to whether the problem still exists so we can file a ticket
upstream as soon as possible.
Since there are insufficient details provided in this report for us to
investigate the issue further, and we have not received feedback to the
information we have requested above, we will assume the problem was not
reproducible, or has been fixed in one of the updates we have released for the
Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade to the latest
update of their distribution, and if this issue turns out to still be
reproducible in the latest update, please reopen this bug with additional
Closing as INSUFFICIENT_DATA.
