Definition Of "invalid" Folder Names And Setting store.allowbadmailbox

(Doc ID 2350682.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 01, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Messaging Server - Version 8.0.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

 
Using:  Oracle Communications Messaging Server 8.0.2.1.20171222 64bit (built Dec 22 2017)

Regarding the following previous KM document: 

Rehostuser / Imsrestore Fails With Error: Invalid Mailbox Name (Doc ID 2341647.1)

A bug was logged at the customer site for the mail client and the response was:

"…technically not required per rfc terminology - SHOULD does not equal MUST/REQUIRED/SHALL…"

Can more explanation be provided on why Oracle thinks these folder names are invalid and should be rejected?

We want the client and the server to be standards compliant, but if this isn't a "MUST", maybe we could just set store.allowbadmailbox and forget about it?
