Oh, my. I have a sinking feeling...
Brad, I've been in the "Preferences for new account" dialog a hundred times. Well... a dozen times.
I've already created my 1st POP account, named "aerotek". I'm now trying to create my 2nd POP account, named "experian".
In the "Preferences for new account" dialog...
Name of account "experian",
Mail address "markfilipak.experian at gmail.com"...etc.
Server for receiving "pop.googlemail.com",
SMTP server (send) "smtp.googlemail.com"...etc.
then, when I click [Apply], a bunch of bogus mailboxes are created (more on this later).
Default inbox (which is prefilled as: "#mh/aerotek/inbox")
then, when I click [Apply], the Default inbox is magically changed back to "#mh/aerotek/inbox".
It's as though Claws is saying "Uh-uh, Mark! You can have only one Inbox."
Before bogus mailboxes, the mailbox structure is:
[i] aerotek (MH)
...where [i] denotes an icon.
After bogus mailboxes, the mailbox structure is:
[i] aerotek (MH)
[i] Mailbox (MH)
Note: "aerotek" appears twice. "experian" doesn't appear.
What do you make of this? I've removed and reinstalled Claws several times. I've 'reinitialized' it several additional times (by deleting the '~/.claws-mail' folder). I'm at my wits end.
Thanks & Ciao - Mark.
