Good to know they fixed it...
If only they'd fix the namespaces issue!!
According to their documentation, it is, quote:
"...usually best to leave the IMAP server directory field empty, check
the checkmark for "Allow server to overide these namespaces" and to use
"INBOX." (the trailing period is critical) in the personal namespace
field. There are some IMAP configurations where that's inappropiate but
it's not as common as most people think. If the namespace is not
configured correctly you will typically see multiple copies of a child
folder, child folders as peers to the Inbox, or be unable to create
child folders. Thunderbird normally displays the Inbox folder as the
root, with no peers."
What's interesting here, is "Thunderbird normally displays the Inbox
folder as the root, with no peers". I get the impression this means
that the namespaces are working correctly when child folders are
displayed as subfolders of the Inbox.
