           Summary: doesn't handle DIR_SEPERATOR plattform independent
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: other
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P3
         Component: Folders

        ReportedBy: exsudat at gmx.de

The case is a little bit tricky.

I rund Kubuntu 12.10 with ClawsMail.
I run Win7 with ClawsMail.

All ClawsMail folders are synced with Wuala (something (better!) like DropBox).
I do this for a lot of other applications, too.

On the windows side I created inside of an account a Folder "List" and four
sub-folders "AG-Pflege" in it. I put some mails in it with the

The same folders appearse on the Linux side, too. No Problem. The counter in
the folder-tree showed me the correct number of maisl in it.

And here it comes...
When I entered the folder all mails diseapeared.

After that I looked on the filesystem (please look at the dir-seperators!).
There is a "List/AG-Pflege" (folder an subfolder) in it as I expected.
But there is one folder "List\AG-Pflege" in it, too. And this folder is empty.

So I think that the windows version of Claws-Mail store somewhere in the
Claws-internas (maybe a config file) the folder path. It use the
DOS_DIR_SEPERATOR (\) for that.
The linux version of Claws-Mail read this information while entering the folder
and get confused about that.
