Just an additional question Hiroyuki: I have used this very IMAP server
and complex folder structure for a number of years now using Sylpheed
1.06 and these problems never occured when using the old Sylpheed-1

I understand that this is a rather complex matter, but do you have an
explanation why this occurs using Sylpheed-3? I skipped Sylpheed-2
(Sylpheed-1 worked too well ;-) so I'm not able to tell you how
Sylpheed-2 behaved in this situation.


It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak
aloud and remove all doubt.
