Problem: In the Netscape IMAP client when the "move deleted items to Trash" is selected, then the user can't delete folders as the "trash folder" refuses to store subfolders.
Solution: This can be fixed by the user simply creating a subfolder in trash (which they can subsequently delete). Doing this creates the USER/Trash/ path on the server and after doing this, the user will be able to delete IMAP folders in Netscape.
Example: Shell script to administratively create trash folders - see solution for instructions.
---- BEGIN SCRIPT ---- #!/bin/tcsh foreach n (`ls`) if (! -f $n) then if (! -d $n/Trash) then echo Creating new Trash Directory for $n mkdir $n/Trash endif if (! -e $n/Trash.box) then echo Creating trash folder for $n touch $n/Trash.box endif endif end ---- END SCRIPT ----
