Subject: squirrelmail: No INBOX link in large folder trees (courier)
Date: Wed, 12 Sep 2012 21:47:39 +0200
Package: squirrelmail
Version: 2:1.4.23~svn20120406-1
Severity: normal

After upgrading squirrelmail from 2:1.4.21-2 (currently in Squeeze/stable)
to 2:1.4.23~svn20120406-1 (currently Wheezy as in testing) I found that 
at least one of my users is missing the INBOX entry/link in the folder tree
whereas the link is shown for other users.

The particular user has a larger list of subscribed folders (390). If I 
reduce the list to 10 entries the INBOX link is shown.

I have tried adding and removing the entry "INBOX" from the list of 
subscribed folders but to no avail.

I have also tested upstream 1.4.23 SVN snapshot of 2012-09-12 with no 
success. The behavior is the same as with the version from testing.

The folder tree appears correctly with the SVN development snapshot of 
2012-09-12 (so version 1.5.2), though this was tested with a fresh 
config.php.

Found the same problem on an installation using Dovecot IMAPd

$ dpkg -l 'dovecot*' | grep ^.i | awk '{print $1,$2,$3}'
ii dovecot-core 1:2.1.7-2
ii dovecot-imapd 1:2.1.7-2
ii dovecot-pop3d 1:2.1.7-2

The folder tree of the affected user has 178 entries.
However, here, the workaround to add INBOX to '.subscriptions' helped!

Thanks for the report. I think I can reproduce it. Will investigate.


Cheers,

In https://sourceforge.net/p/squirrelmail/bugs/2799/#ffc5 
Thomas Baumann pointed out that the problem is apparently caused by 
inexisting yet subscribed folders.

I can confirm that non-existing "folders" cause or can cause the link 
to the INBOX folder to be missing on Courier and Dovecot, probably 
also on other servers. In fact, the bug probably does not depend on 
the size of the folder tree. On my Dovecot server I could reproduce 
the problem even with a folder tree of only 20 entries.

Removing the inexisting folders from .subscriptions (Dovecot) or 
courierimapsubscribed (Courier) works around the bug.
