           Summary: Unsanitised Folder Creation
           Product: Claws Mail (Windows)
           Version: CVS
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: default
        AssignedTo: users at lists.claws-mail.org
        ReportedBy: clawsmail at kushwaha.com

When creating a new folder (at least on Windows), the folder name typed in by
the user should be sanitised, for example, trailing space removed, trailing
periods removed, etc. so that illegal folder names are not attempted.

Currently such requests are processed but the actual folder name on Windows
file system (which creates the folders using legal characters or at least
attempts to do so) does not match the folder name captured in folderlist.xml
(which uses the input in the folder creation dialog box in Claws-Mail) which
leads to various problems.
