I just added a new email account and all of a sudden I get this message every once in a while.

The current command did not succeed. The mail server responded: SELECT mailbox does not exist.

I don't know why I am getting this. I setup it up on another computer and I don't seem to get this alert.

I don't know what is causing it. I am assuming it is my new email account but I don't know what about it is causing it.

It also just appears every once in a while. Like I can click "get mail" and it will go through and get my mail. Then I do it again and I get the above message.

its something with the folders your using and the folders your server is using. Is this IMAP?

I setup for IMAP and I just setup through thunderbird and whatever it came with after it setup my account is what I have. I added no new folder to it or anything. – chobo2 Sep 27 '09 at 23:39
