Post #3 of 3
It's a dbmail bug.
Re: RE: Thunderbird and ACL shared folders
[In reply to]
If you issue a simple 'x LIST "" *' mailboxes the current user has 'l'
permissions on below #Users will show up nicely. This is what SM does.
However, TB uses 'x LIST "" #Users*' which is currently not allowed by
dbmail. It should be however. TB also tries to fall back to addition
variations, but those also fail.
Please file a bug someone.
