    Hello,

    we have a similar problem: One of our customers has several folders with special chars in his mailbox and after the obsidian upgrade (and change to dovecot) he saw the special chars in the folder names and renamed them in roundcube. But after the renaming of a folder roundcube shows the error "Mailbox does not exist" when selecting this folder (every other folder works ok). So he is not able to access the emails in this folder any more. What can we do to make the old folder accessible again? Any help would be much appreciated!

    Hi there,

    we solved the problem by renaming the folder names to not use any special chars in the terminal:

    cd /var/qmail/mailnames/{domain-name}/{email-name}/Maildir
    mv folder_name_with_special_chars folder_name_without_special_chars

    Afterwards the folders must be subscribed again and then can be accessed and even renamed in roundcube to contain special chars.

    Hello Ole

    Sorry for the late response.

    Glad to hear that the solution was found. This may be useful for other Pleskians.

    When the issue from this article will be fixed, the article will be updated.
