Subject: [gentoo-user] Thunderbird folder structure on Imap servers inconsistent

1 Hi there,
3 I'm trying out some mail clients with Imap support, and when using thunderbird
4 (v24.2, latest version in stable gentoo tree) I encountered several problems
5 regarding imap server consistency:
7 Folders which I already deleted still appear (marked in itallic grey color in
8 TB's folder list)
10 Some folders appear multiple times (e.g. I have a folders like
12 Mailinglists
13 + Gentoo
14 + users
16 where all the mail from this forum goes to. This is consistent with the
17 filesystem on my Imap server (dovecot). But, additionally, the 'Gentoo'
18 subfolder appears in top level again (with all its other subfolders as well),
19 and the 'users' folder appears again in top level a third time. Furthermore,
20 when I select an unread mail in 'Mailinglists/Gentoo/users', the counter of
21 unread mail decreases in the top level copy.
23 Does anyone have similar experiences?
25 Best regards,
26 Alex
