From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020530 BuildID: 2002053012 Recently, my Internet has been going out quite frequently. Now, I use Mozilla to get my IMAP mail. I usually leave the mail window open on the Inbox folder throughout the day. Mozilla is set to retrieve mail every 1 minute. It appears, though, that when my Internet connection gets dropped, that when it reconnects, all of my mail is deleted. My inbox is completely empty. When I check the same account through webmail (http://webmail.mit.edu/), my inbox is also completely empty, and there are no messages to undelete. The messages previously in my inbox are also not in the trash folder. I do, however, have several folders besides Inbox in my IMAP account. Those folders all retain their contents. Now I am not 100% sure that this is Mozilla's fault, but it appears to be. This has happened a few times over the past few months. Reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: I haven't actually tried this, but I would expect this would work: 1. Setup an IMAP account. 2. Set Mozilla to check for mail every 1 minute. 3. Open the Inbox. 4. Disconnect your Internet for 5-10 minutes. 5. Reconnect your Internet connection. 6. Attempt to read mail. Actual Results: Inbox cleared. Expected Results: Retain Inbox messages.
Summary: Inbox Folder of IMAP Account → Inbox Folder of IMAP Account
Summary: Inbox Folder of IMAP Account → Inbox Folder of IMAP Account Cleared
Never mind...I just realized what the problem was. I was running the pine mail program on an SSH connection, and I didn't realize it was downloading all the messages and deleting them... Marking INVALID.
