Renaming label to a pre-existing one deletes all pre-existing labels


I found this the hard way.

I already had "@e-mail" label and also created "@email" inadvertently. Not wanting to have two labels for the same purpose, I renamed "@email" to "@e-mail". Unfortunately, that deleted all previous "@e-mail" labels.

Hello W,

Sorry for the inconvenience, this issue has been addressed and now when you try to add or rename a label using a name that already exists in a different label, you will see an error message.

Best regards,
