(This bug imported from BugSplat, Netscape's internal bugsystem. It was known there as bug #362652 http://scopus.netscape.com/bugsplat/show_bug.cgi?id=362652 Imported into Bugzilla on 09/07/99 10:55) Nav4.61 on WinNT 4.0 SP3. To repro: 1) Create an aka alias "marek-signup" with distribution to QA tester (email@example.com?) 2) open Messenger 3) create new folder marek-signup 4) create subfolder of marek-signup called Day1Standards 5) Edit-->Message Filters 6) create a new filter: a) check "All of the following" b) to or cc: includes firstname.lastname@example.org c) body contains Day1Standards=yes d) move to Day1Standards 7) create a second filter, after the first in the filter order: a) check "All of the following" b) to or cc: includes email@example.com d) move to marek-signup Now, a message sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with Day1Standards=yes in the body should move to Day1Standards; all others sent to email@example.com should move to marek-signup. But now test it: 8) open WebMail 9) send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org with a blank subject and Day1Standards=yes in the body 10) the message winds up in marek-signup, not in Day1Standards; the first rule failed to execute. If the subject is not blank, the first rule works fine. Mainly I want to be sure the same bug doesn't occur in Nav5. ------- Additional Comments From marek Sep-07-1999 10:27 ------- assigning to phil for 5.0 consideration.
I don't believe it for a second, but I'll see if it happens in 5.0 (actually, I can't, because body filters don't work yet)
FYI, I've seen this happen in Nav 4.6 on WinNT 4.0 SP3 myself, so I believe this is a real bug. During the CodeStock registration, we received submissions by email form submit from a variety of browsers. If the browser produced a blank subject line, the filters we'd set up (which included tests on the body) tended to fail. The CodeStock registration form is at http://www.mozilla.org/newlayout/signup.html Not certain which browsers were generating the blank subject line submissions. I believe that email messages with a Subject of "(no subject)" or "Unidentified subject!" were failing to filter. FWIW.

Verifying this bug.
Messenger->Edit-->Message Filters->New filter does not have "body" field in it. Cannot reproduce step 6c. Is this a bug? I dont see this field in 4.x either. Filed bug 56781 for the missing field.
body filters only exist for pop, not for imap.
OK using jan08 commercial trunk build, win98
