           Summary: deleting a folder fails on dovecot server
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: 3.8.0
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Folders/IMAP
        AssignedTo: users at lists.claws-mail.org
        ReportedBy: schlittchen at uni-bremen.de

Claws-Mail has a bug in it's IMAP handling when trying to delete
a folder. For example, deletion of a folder 'testtest' in INBOX.Trash
is not possible:

[IMAP]    [11:27:31]    111 delete "INBOX.Trash.testtest."
[IMAP]    [11:27:32]    111 NO Invalid mailbox name: INBOX.Trash.testtest.

Basically, the separator appended to the mailbox name is wrong. Older
servers seem to tolerate a trailing separator, because they more or less
translate the delete operation into an rmdir(), but dovecot does not. A
detailed discussion of this can be found in the exchange between the dovecot
and the thunderbird developers in the thunderbird bugtracker:
