Works here! Maybe you can update to beta2 and see if you can still reproduce.
But when I added folders to Favorites I can't remove them...
Comment 3 Thiago Macieira 2010-12-07 12:56:05 UTC
I had this problem. It's caused by the migrator tool copying the settings from old kmail1, but not the folders themselves. When faced with unknown folders, nothing is shown.

Edit kmail2rc and remove the folders listed there.
Comment 4 Laurent Montel 2010-12-07 13:52:26 UTC
So if we have unknow folders, folder doesn't work even if we add new folder ?
It"s a big pb in favorite folder view.
Comment 5 Thiago Macieira 2010-12-07 14:20:56 UTC
That is correct. The favourite folder shows nothing at all, which means that adding a folder has no visible result, either via dragging or via Right Click -> Add to Favourites.

If you try to re-add a folder that you've already added, you get a "can't drop" icon and the menu entry in the RMB menu disappears.

Cleaning favorite folder list in kmail2rc works great here!

Now I can add and remove favorite folders to/from list.

dnd doesn't work. It's a know bugs.
but it's a very bad bug that favorite folder view doesn't work when we have unknown folder.
We need to fix it quickly.
