Dear All

can someone confirm this bug please ?

I am using Thunderbird 1.07, TB, Horde/IMP webmail as test clients,
all running on FC4.

Server is 1.0RC6 on CentOS 4 with maildir-sep set to ';'

To reproduce:

In your favourite mail client:

1. Create a top-level mail folder "atest"

2. Rename "atest" to "atest-extra" (basically hyphen<anything>)

Result: Error about mailbox "atest-extra" does not exist

If you refresh the folder list you see a new folder
called "atest-extra-extra" (read all about it).

Anyone else see this or is just me ?

Many thanks
