Mailbox drop-down list bug - cannot select mailbox beyond a certain point in the list Empty Mailbox drop-down list bug - cannot select mailbox beyond a certain point in the list

Thu Feb 17, 2022 7:39 am
NOTE: it's likely that this bug will only affect users with hundreds and hundreds of mailboxes. I imported perhaps 600 or even more mailboxes from Eudora, so it's like to affect only long-term (two or three decades) Eudora users.

Be aware that up to Pandora v4.1.3.1 (the current version as of this posting), when creating filters -- and any other operation involving selecting a mailbox from a drop-down list -- all the mailboxes beyond a certain point have their names greyed out and are not selectable as targets.

In the screenshot.the yellow highlighted mailbox names are the first of many names  that aren't selectable.

The only workaround is to carefully edit the corresponding XML file to achieve the desired result, which is not easy because those XML files are long and pretty complex so you have to do the editing VERY carefully indeed.

This bug has troubled me ever since I migrated to Pandora, and Brana still hasn't released a solution yet. Of course, I acknowledge that he's been very busy doing plenty of other important things to Pandora.

Yes, there was a limit of 2000 items per menu, now it's 5000. It will be gradually increased over time.
The reason for this is Pandora's tight grip over command-id range.
