Error when archiving

Reported by Tim Thienpont | October 23rd, 2018 @ 08:18 AM

When I hit the archive button, I get the following error:

MailMate encountered the following error: “Mailbox unexpectedly already exists. Command: 'M5 CREATE Archive'.”.
Mailbox: “Archive”.

Any suggestions to solve this?

    Try “Edit Subscriptions” in the IMAP account editor for the account and see if you have an unsubscribed Archive mailbox.

    You might need the latest test release because of a bug in “Edit Subscriptions”: Hold down ⌥ when clicking “Check Now” in the Software Update preferences pane.

    It took me a while to find the “Edit Subscriptions” but that was indeed the solution. Thanks a lot for the swift and helpful reply!
