Description:I have voicemail.conf configured with "imapfolder=voicemail", but I still get error messages in my logs:

[Nov  2 14:46:15] ERROR[25200] app_voicemail.c: IMAP Error: Mailbox does not exist

My Cyrus telemetry logs have this:

<1194028379<00000003 SELECT INBOX
>1194028379>00000003 NO Mailbox does not exist

Why is Asterisk trying to select my INBOX when I have an imap folder explicitly defined?

There is a comment in the code (in init_mailstream()) that says "Connect to INBOX first to get folders delimiter".  It appears that this is done on purpose.

Why not use a LIST * command?  Or a NAMESPACE command?

The LIST idea seems sensible. I'll post a patch soon.

And as soon as I posted that last comment, I realized what was going on...

A LIST is actually already used to get the delimiter, but in order to execute this, you have to have a mailstream to operate on. In order to get a mailstream, Asterisk attempts to connect to the INBOX mailbox.

Unless I'm missing something here, this seems somewhat silly, and we should just use the folder specified in voicemail.conf instead every time we connect.

Patch forthcoming.

Patch uploaded. Hopefully this will rid your logs of those errors.

Confirmed.  INBOX is no longer incorrectly SELECTed.

If imapfolder has been specified in voicemail.conf, we should not connect to INBOX...
ever. It may not exist.
