I recently had a problem with using my IMAP account. When trying to connect using mozilla (0.9.6 & 0.9.7) mail would just say "Connecting to Server..." and nothing would happen. It wouldn't even ask me the password. When i tried to connect using Outlook Express I got the following error message: Configuration: Account: test Server: mail User name: dvir Protocol: IMAP Port: 143 Secure(SSL): 0 Code: 800ccc0f As I understand, error 800ccc0f means that the server rejected the connection. The problem was solved when my administrator fixed a mistake in the linux server's hosts file. Mozilla should have given me an error message as well when it couldn't connect, but nothing happened. It just seems to try connecting indefinitely.
mozilla should have given an error yes.. is it possible to duplicate this on a new build? I assume not.. as you say the problem was fixed. This means that it's not possible to push this bug any further. I'll resolve it to 'wontfix' for want of a better solution.
