    Default desktop hangs while syncing if IMAP server error

    reported as Bug 38475

    zdesktop hangs with
    Failure communicating with remote server. Please try again later.
    if there's a one-off problem on the server end, rather than ignoring the unsyncable item and syncing everything else.

    Basically zdesktop is trying to download something that it shouldn't - a file that's not in the LSUB list, and isn't a mailbox, but is in the user directory on the server
    The IMAP server logs "Fatal error - header size inconsistent"
    I can't see the actual IMAP sequence because zdesktop doesn't support "no TLS".

    Obvious workarounds are to remove the problem file from the server, or to reconfigure the mailstore so that it contains only mailboxes. But other IMAP clients such as Thunderbird, Pine do not have a problem

    Default

    I have reproduced the problem; the IMAP server aborts trying to select certain malformed "mailboxes".

    Nevertheless, zdesktop ought to be able to recover from a single IMAP SELECT failure.
