Server name text field for POP Server was set to our domain.
We changed IP-Address for our domain and the pop3 server was
now on and pointed to router.

I changed in mozilla mail the server name text field for POP Server from to 
Then a message showed up saying, that I have to take care 
that filters must be set for new folders (or something like that).
I think this is ok, but after pressing "OK" mozilla freezed.
(No more updates of GUI).

I tried twice, then I installed mozilla0.9.9 from beginning, so that I was
able to proceed.

I got now other error messages or additional info for this bug.

There is also a similar problem with news servers, I cannot find the bug ref at
the mo but it sounds exactly the same problem, ie when you modify an existing
entry it causes the browser to lock up. My guess is that it is the same piece of
code causing both problems.

OK, bug 113590 was fixed early 2002 so can you try a build after the fix went in
and see if it resolves your problem? Thanks.
