    Hello,

    I'm using Icedove (Thunderbird) and DavMail to access my Exchange mailbox.
    I've recently discovered that Outlook categories work, but I found that
    there is a problem.

    When a category has spaces in it, e.g. "This Test", then it is not
    mapped to a similarily named tag in Thunderbird, it doesnt show up.

    Do you have any idea how to fix this?

    Thanks & Regards,

  • Sure, you will need to map Outlook category to a valid IMAP flag, just add the following line to .davmail.properties:
    davmail.imapFlags.some_test_flag=Some test Category

    You can also use a custom label for your flag, see
    https://wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird2:Tags

    Works perfectly! I've added one davmail property for each tag/category and now they are mapped correctly:
    - upper/lowercase is reflected correctly
    - tags with spaces and symbols are behaving well, e.g. tags with dashes and dots

    Thanks,
