For a maildir name such as:
It does not do this for me. Instead error massage is shown stating that such file cannot be created. Can you post the script file that you use. Also do you use SFTP or SCP?
I'm using SCP, though this appears to happen with both SFTP and SCP.
Here's the file:
option batch on
option exclude "maildir; *mrtg*; *spamass*"
option synchdelete on
synchronize local d:\2sparrows-backup /home
It's in the saved profile for email@example.com where I have it set to not replace special chars (or to replace them).
BTW, I have this working by zipping up maildir, where the ":" shows up in the file names, so it's not a huge deal. It does mean that the zipped file get's synch'd every night.
