Build Date & Platform Bug Found:
 PPC Necko seamonkey build 1999-07-29-08-m9 installed on PPC 9600/300 OS 8.5.1

Overview Description: .
After selecting a IMAP thread, the content of message fails to display in message
pane.

This does not occur under POP.  I can switch to a POP folder and display the
message contents.

Steps to Reproduce:
0) Remove the previous profile and mozilla registry
1) Launch Apprunner
2) Follow the wizard and create a new profile
   Mozilla brower window is launched.
3) Quit apprunner
4) Copy your IMAP prefs50.js file to your profile
5) Re-launch appruner
6) Open the Messenger window through the task menu
   Messenger window is opened
7) Click on the "+" widget to expand the list of folder under the IMAP server
8) Select the IMAP Inbox
   A list of IMAP message headers are displayed in the thread pane
9) Select any message
   The message pane does not display the message.

Actual Results:
 If the start page is loaded, it remains displayed in the message pane.  If I had
a previous pop displayed, it remains displayed in the message pane.  I waited a
few minutes but no change.

Expected Results:
 After selecting a imap message, the contents should be displayed in the message
pane.

Additional Builds and Platforms Tested On:
 This problem does not occur on the Mac non-necko build 1999-07-26-15-m9 build.
This problem does not occur on the Win32 necko build 1999-29-08-m9 build

Additional Information:

David - would this be yours?
Peter - any IMAP log available?

It wasn't mine last time. And I don't have a mac. Perhaps Scott has a clue. Or
JF.
This seems like a Necko-Mac thing...
I was able to see IMAP messages last week with a necko build. Should be something new
Target Milestone: M9
Is this still happening?  This sounds like an M9, so I'm going to mark it that
way.  Who do we need to look at this?
This is a duplicate of  Bug #10797 as viewing an imap message requires us to
make a blocking write to the server. So we should hang. But the hang would
happen on the imap thread not the UI thread which is why you don't notice that
the thread has hung.

Marking as a dup.
