Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kmail

I have several "archive" IMAP folders, called "INBOX.archive.2008",
"INBOX.archive.2009", etc. There is no "INBOX.archive" folder. When
KMail checks my mail, I get an error popup containing a server error
"INBOX.archive does not exist or needs to be subscribed to". I would
expect KMail to only query IMAP folders that exist. The server-side
subscription dialog box correctly shows that the "archive" folder cannot
be subscribed to. However, KMail still insists on accessing that folder
when checking for new mail, or when I click on it.

I've attached a screenshot of the dialog box.

I'm using Kubuntu 9.10:
