Nothing in syslog that really helped.
I have both "unixhierarchysep" and "altnamespace". From my conf:
Nothing in that respect has changed. I've always had "altnamespace" to
give me folders at the same level as INBOX and I've always had
"unixhierarchysep" to give me folder separator of "/" rather than "." (I
actually use the "." in some folder names).
My config worked fine for me for a very long time until I had to upgrade
earlier this week. I think my ACLs are fine:
localhost.localdomain> lm user/john
localhost.localdomain> lm user/john/folder.name/subfolder
localhost.localdomain> lam user/john/folder.name/subfolder
localhost.localdomain> lam user/john
So I am stumped :)
Thanks for helping, much appreciated.
