DIAGNOSTICS

Warning: Cannot find head back for $uidl in $folder.

The header was read before, but now seems empty: the IMAP4 server does not produce the header lines anymore.

Warning: Cannot read body for $uidl in $folder.

The header of the message was retrieved from the IMAP4 server, but the body is not read, for an unknown reason.

Error: Copying failed for one message.

For some reason, for instance disc full, removed by external process, or read-protection, it is impossible to copy one of the messages. Copying will proceed for the other messages.

Error: Couldn't select IMAP4 folder $name
Error: Destination folder $name is not writable.

The folder where the messages are copied to is not opened with write access (see new(access)). This has no relation with write permission to the folder which is controlled by your operating system.

Warning: Different messages with id $msgid

The message id is discovered more than once within the same folder, but the content of the message seems to be different. This should not be possible: each message must be unique.

Error: Folder $name not deleted: not writable.

The folder must be opened with write access via new(access), otherwise removing it will be refused. So, you may have write-access according to the operating system, but that will not automatically mean that this delete method permits you to. The reverse remark is valid as well.

Notice: Impossible to keep deleted messages in IMAP

Some folder type have a 'deleted' flag which can be stored in the folder to be performed later. The folder keeps that knowledge even when the folder is rewritten. Well, IMAP4 cannot play that trick.

Error: Invalid timespan '$timespan' specified.

The string does not follow the strict rules of the time span syntax which is permitted as parameter.

Warning: Message $uidl disappeared from $folder.

Trying to get the specific message from the server, but it appears to be gone.

Warning: Message $uidl disappeared from $folder.

Trying to get the specific message from the server, but it appears to be gone.

Warning: Message-id '$msgid' does not contain a domain.

According to the RFCs, message-ids need to contain a unique random part, then an @, and then a domain name. This is made to avoid the creation of two messages with the same id. The warning emerges when the @ is missing from the string.

Error: No IMAP4 transporter configured
Error: Package $package does not implement $method.

Fatal error: the specific package (or one of its superclasses) does not implement this method where it should. This message means that some other related classes do implement this method however the class at hand does not. Probably you should investigate this and probably inform the author of the package.

Error: Unable to create subfolder $name of $folder.

The copy includes the subfolders, but for some reason it was not possible to copy one of these. Copying will proceed for all other sub-folders.
