           Summary: search tries to access nonexisting mailboxes
           Product: kmail
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Debian stable
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs kde org
        ReportedBy: ovit.debian gmail com

Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.6)
Installed from:    Debian stable Packages

Reported in Debian BTS at http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=384863


On my IMAP account, I have folders "INBOX.foo.bar" and "INBOX.foo.baz"
but I do not have a folder "INBOX.foo".

Mostly, kmail handles this properly. The folder browser tree shows
INBOX/foo in gray (while, e.g., INBOX/foo/bar is blue). The
"subscribe" option does not show any checkbox next to INBOX/foo. And
so on.

However, the search function does not seem to handle this ok. Every
time I perform a recursive search ("INBOX" and all its subfolders), I
get the following error message:

    "Error while searching.
     Unable to open folder INBOX.foo. The server replied: Mailbox does
     not exist, or must be subscribed to."

Best regards,
Jukka Suomela
