I recently installed dovecot 0.99 on a fedora core 1 Server which used 
the wu-imap-server.

dovecot starts and I can subscribe to my old imapfolders, but if I send 
mails to my account, this new mail arent downloaded. If I quit Mozilla 
and restart Mozilla, the recently send mails are in my inbox.

We use also a webmailsystem, so I could verify that the mails are in the 
inbox without relogging in.

This phenome is not showing up by all my imap accounts.

I'm testing with mozilla 1.7.3 and 1.8a4 on a mac os x 10.3.5 Client.

The Inbox-folder for the "defect" account is showing in italic and grey 
ghosted (in the folder list), the folder in the working account is normal.

A user using Netscape 7.1 on a Windows XP Client has also no Problems....

Any Ideas?
