-Option --Defined in--Default folderdir Mail::Box <not used>
You have opened the folder read-only --which is the default set by new(access)--, made modifications, and now want to close it. Set close(force) if you want to overrule the access mode, or close the folder with close(write) set to
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.
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 controled by your operating system.
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.
You can not write to this folder unless you have opened the folder to write or append with new(access), or the
force option is set true.
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.
The string does not follow the strict rules of the time span syntax which is permitted as parameter.
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.
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.
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.
For some reason (you probably got more error messages about this problem) it is impossible to write the folder, although you should because there were changes made.
