Post by Stevanovitch » 2015-12-20 18:54

I use hmail 5.6.4-B2283

I meet a problem with folder's name, we often use "." in them , and seem to be "bad" !

best regards.

Sorry for my "english school" .

SETTINGS - PROTOCOL - IMAP - Advanced tells you what the hierarchy delimiter is. If you have a character of the same in your folder names then you will have a problem (and DOT is default). The only way around is to not use DOT in the folder name OR change the hierarchy delimiter.
