Unable to delete imap folders

Reported by Andreas Jung | May 18th, 2015 @ 04:47 AM

Attached screenshots show that the "Delete mailbox" option is unavailable for some IMAP folder.
Why is this? I can add/remove folders within the parent folder using Mulberry/Postbox Inc/Thunderbird...

    MailMate does not allow deleting non-empty mailboxes (I'm always very careful about anything involving deleting anything permanently). This is a safeguard until some kind of appropriate warning has been implemented.

    This is a duplicate of ticket #902.

    I guess that adding a warning is a priceless and very low hanging fruit for a very important functionality.

    @Jung: An email client is a very big tree. Even the low hanging fruit can take a lot of time to pick — at least for someone like me. (And this is not a 2 minute fix since I have to be careful when removing current safeguards against deleting non-empty IMAP mailboxes.)

    I can increase its priority if you happen to very often delete non-empty IMAP mailboxes (it's not my impression this is the case for most users).
