The build used is old but the symptoms are the same with those of bug 118180 (?)
in 4 January build. Strange...

Reporter, can you try a more recent build?

Using 2002010703 commercial trunk build on NT 4.0, I
do not see this problem. I am able to compose 3 or 4 messages
at a time and click in any of the mesg bodies and I
see the cursor and I am able to type in to the mesg body.

I tried going offline via profile mgr, starting browser online and
then going offline before I start mail, going offline after I have
logged into my imap mail acct. Tried reply/forw/compose and I didn't
see the problem.

Is it migrated profile? Happen with new profiles? Are you using
a imap mail act?

Do not use a migrated (Netscape 4.7x -> Mozilla) account and no imap! Tried the
build 20020108, it is always the same problem. Creating a new profile does not help.
The problem does not happen, if I start online, than switch to offline mode an
compose messages. (Using Windows 2000,  Irish version).

Reporter what type of mail account are you using then?

I'm using latest build 2002011003 on win nt 4.0 and I
still can't reproduce the problem?

Is it specific mail mesg? I am not sure we can help you out.

This is what i did:
1.started profile mgr
2.selected a mail account (my pop mail)
3.checked work offline checkbox and hit start mozilla button
4.browser pops up in offline mode mail icon, messenger starts compose button.
7.Type in address at to field, typed in subject heading
8.used my mouse and clicked into the body section and started typing.
9.Left the mesg up
10.Clicked compose button and created 2nd mesg
11.repeated steps 7-9
12.clicked compose button and created 3rd mesg

I was able to type in any of the 3 body field mesgs with no problems.
