Versoin: Squirrelmail 1.4.5
I checked the change summary and didn't see this fixed
in new versions.
The problem is that squirrel mail will do a "subscribe"
on a NoSelect folder on the imap server (like a
directory) when you first login.
In combination with the latest UW imapd serve (2006a),
this causes squirrel mail to bomb (at least in the left
frame, where it is trying to load folders).
Intead of giving a folder list it gives the error:
ERROR: Could not complete request.
Query: SUBSCRIBE "mail/WHATEVER"
Reason Given: Can't subscribe mail/WHATEVER: not a
Looks like this is a no-no?
RFC 3501 says this about the subscribe command:
A server MAY validate the mailbox argument
to SUBSCRIBE to verify that it exists.
However, it MUST NOT unilaterally remove an
existing mailbox name from the subscription
list even if a mailbox by that name no longer
So, that's what imapd is doing; if the name is not a
mailbox (it has the \NoSelect attribute) it is not
added to the subscription list.
Hope that helps, thanks.
