Bug Description

After a fresh install of kubuntu oneiric I get a warning notification with:

Local Folders: Maildir '' for collection '' is invalid.

Same here. I've installed Kubuntu oneiric a couple of times, every time I firstly logged into system, it warns me about mail folders...

Fresh install of Kubuntu 11.10, running Kontact 4.7.2.
When I ask Kmail to check for new mail, multiple error messages are raised, saying;
 Local Folders: MailDir " for collection " is invalid.

Similar symptoms on Kubuntu 12.04.
Fresh install of Kubuntu 12.04, Kontact 4.8.2.
Multiple error messages when doing just about anything in Kmail (eg moving folders).

Same here.
Kubuntu 12.04.2, KMail 4.8.5. Mail folder from filesystem was imported in Akonadi.

When I create a new folder, it is present in file system and writeable.
I can move a mail in this folder. It doesn't get deleted in the old folder, I can access it in both the old and the new folder.
Only when I open the new folder, the error message appears:
MailDir " for collection " is invalid.
