GMAIL - [IMAP] cannot change folder

Each time I open eMclient, I’m presented an OPERATIONS window with a message from my GMail account the [IMAP] cannot change folder.

Why is that? What does it mean? and How can I avoid or ignore this message?

Can you switch to the Log tab in the Operations window and post us the message displayed there? Thanks.

Surely…

Hope this helps.
I appreciate it…

Apparently the key line is this:

[IMAP] Cannot change folder.
(Unknown Mailbox: Inbox/Friends (Failure))

The server tells eM Client that the mailbox Inbox/Friends doesn’t exist which then causes the error message “cannot change folder”.

The only way I was able to reproduce it was to open eM Client, then delete the label “Inbox/Friends” label in the web interface and then try to access it in the opened client.

I have the same problem described does not work. After deleting the folder in eMClient and in the web interface always appears again :frowning:
