I have one piece of spam in my inbox that I cannot delete. In fact, selecting it means I can no longer delete any other mail. The (wierd looking) headers (from view message source) are Return-Path: <firstname.lastname@example.org> Message-ID: <email@example.com> From: firstname.lastname@example.org () Subject: (reply) ��������������������������������������������������������������������������������e39726 X-UIDL: !c+"!OGf!!oY!#!i[,!! I'm guessing that that subject line actually contains a lot of unprintable characters - any way I can test that hypothesis?
If I select view->headers->all from the menu then I can deal with the message as per usual. It's only if view->headers->normal is selected that I get the problem.
I just tried injecting that email into a folder, and it displays fine and I can delete it without any problems. Does this still happen in a newer build? (You forgot to mention which build you are using) If it does, could right click on the message and click Save As and save that file and then attach it to the bug?
I'm using Mozilla-0.9.9. I've not had a chance to pull something newer recently. I build with -O2 -mcpu=athlon -march=athlon on gcc-3.0.4 The bug is still happening. If I select Save as from Mozilla it truncates the message to 8kiB so I've attached it direct from my maildir.
Created attachment 79344 [details] Problem email I'm guessing it is text/plain as I can't see another encoding. There is a lot of HTML in the message though. FOr some reason I couldn't post it with Mozilla. Maybe I need to change some configuration on my proxy, but I thought I'd try with another browser first...
Created attachment 103969 [details] Message Delete Error Cannot delete any message with 2002091014 (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2a) Gecko/20020910)
Cannot delete any message with 2002091014 (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2a) Gecko/20020910). This bug should be marked CRITICAL.
Could you please download a recent nightly build from <ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/>, and then let us know if you still see this problem? Thanks
reporter, can you save the file as .eml file and post it as attachment?
I am not sure if this is related, but someone sent me a 16meg attachment (yes, I yelled at them) which, when I deleted it, seemed to cause the creation of an e-mail with the date 12/31/1969 which I cannot delete (or move). It has happened once more since then (again, after getting a large attachment and trying to delete it). I got this while using the released version of 1.2.1 and have since upgraded to the released version of 1.3 (which will still not let me delete it).
Created attachment 122510 [details] Problem email (2) This is the same as the previous attachment, just posted as application/octet-stream, so hopefully non of the strange header characters are lost. I still appear to get the problem, and still only if view->headers->normal is selected rather than all...
Sorry, should of said, I'm using 1.4a now. I've just done a bit more experimenting and the bug is largely better now. The only problem I get is with headers set to normal. 1. move problem email from folder 1 to folder 2 2. select folder 2 3. attempt to move problem email from folder 2 to folder 3 (fails) 4. attempt to delete problem email (Fails) 5. select folder 1 6. select folder 2 7. attempt to move problem email from folder 2 to folder 3 (succeeds)
Loz, have you tried reproducing this bug with a recent build? If you don't see this any more, the bug could be closed.
I can't reproduce either the original problem, or the second lesser problem from comment #11.
