    Win Vista 64 Home Premium & PMAIL 4.52 - cannot make new folders

    Angry OK, posted about this before and never got an answer, so now have set folder and file ownership to "Everyone" and installed Pegasus Mail 4.52 - still no joy. I can rename folders, I CAN'T move folders, and I can't MAKE folders. I have NOT tried to delete them since I couldn't replace the ones I have. I have tried to make and use public directories, nothing happens there.  I moved a million sub-directories from my mail store just to clean things up (seem to be related to RSS I guess) Each time I try again. What is happening is that I click "Add" and no window but I can't click anywhere else. I can press ESC and the program returns to normal. Rename works, moving doesn't, public folders do not seem to work (afraid to move a fold to there - and of course can't make one there)

     HELP HELP HELP  I'm a long time Pegasus user and used to be contributor in the beta forums (before my health got bad Sad ) but please, I can't have my beloved PMAIL like this. Below is the information from the "Info" tab: (the -i Liz was the latest in my attempts to get this to work)
