Remote Training Script Gives Error

I’ve had the same remote training script for about a half dozen years:

on run
	my doRemoteTraining()
end run

on perform_mail_action(_info)
	my doRemoteTraining()
end perform_mail_action

on doRemoteTraining()
	tell application "Mail"
		set _mailbox to mailbox "Is Spam" of account "Don"
		repeat with _message in messages of _mailbox
			set _source to _message's source
			tell application "SpamSieve" to add spam message _source
			-- Would like this to go On My Mac, but don't know how
			set _message's mailbox to mailbox "Junk" of account "Don"
		end repeat
	end tell
end doRemoteTraining

I added the doRemoteTraining() and run handlers tonight so I could troubleshoot. I moved the script to my Mountain Lion system after running it for years on Leopard. I’m getting an error on this line:

		set _mailbox to mailbox "Is Spam" of account "Don"

The error is “Mail got an error: Can’t get mailbox “Is Spam” of account “Don”.” I double-checked; the account is correct, the mailbox is correct, and if I loop through the mailbox names in the account I get a hit on “_mailbox is equal to ‘Is Spam’”. If I use your remote training script, Michael, I still get the error. Any ideas?

If you leave off the of account “Don” it will use On My Mac.

You must have modified my script because it works with a mailbox named “TrainSpam” not “Is Spam”. Have you tried using the script as written? I’ve seen cases where Apple Mail’s AppleScript fails if the mailbox name contains a space.

I get the same error with your unmodified script and the mailbox name changed to “TrainSpam”:

error "Mail got an error: Can’t get mailbox \"TrainSpam\" of account \"Don\"." number -1728 from mailbox "TrainSpam" of account "Don"

Is there any possibility that this message might be related?

Didn't create IMAPMailbox for (null)

Rebuilding the database (removing Envelope Index) didn’t solve either error.

Ah. The IMAP prefix for the inbox was wrong. I found that out when I tried creating a new “TrainSpam” mailbox. Once I fixed that, both errors disappeared.
