The retrieval of folder contents can fail if the folder names contain blank spaces, since the "select" command sent by the imap_select1() function does not enclose the folder name in double quotes.

I added the double quotes in the fdm 1.3c source code to see if that was all that was needed, and it worked for me. I can now retrieve messages from folders which gave me trouble before.

    Yes, this is a problem. I'm not sure if folder names can contain "s in which case the {length} mechanism should be used instead of "s. I'll have a look at it later this week.

    Thanks for the report.

    Should be fixed in CVS, will be in 1.4.

    Thanks for the report.
