Description

16 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.0rc1)
Gecko/20020417
BuildID:    2002041711

Whenever I try to launch the mail application it just simply hangs.  I have
Netscape 6.2.2 installed and have been using that to manage my email.  Whenever
I launch Netscape's mail application it first prompts me for the password for my
Netsacape WebMail account.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Have Netscape 6.2.2 installed and configure the mail client to attach to a
Netscape WebMail account.
2.  Install Mozilla build 2002041711.
3.  Launch Mozilla.
4.  Launch the Mail and Newsgroups application in Mozilla.
5.  Mozilla should hang - happens everytime for me.

Actual Results:  Mozilla hangs and I must use the Windows XP task manager to
kill the application.

Expected Results:  Should be able to enter into my email account.

you can't read netscape webmail accounts using mozilla. That's a proprietary
netscsape only feature. Is that what you are trying to do?

it happens also with my "sent" folder, hanging while accessing it, but I can
switch to another folder, trying to open a mail in the "sent" folder locks
definitively Mozilla.

Yes, I was attempting to connect to the Netscape web based email.  I imagine it
picked that up from my Netscape 6.2.2 configuration.  I see now that there is no
way to configure Mozilla to manage my Netscape email account.
