Description

16 years ago
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1b) Gecko/2002080820

It happened to me several time the last few days, but not every time.

When I close Mozilla and later restart it, the message (I use to have exactly
one the last few days) in the Inbox (POP3, so it is saved locally) is marked
unread. It was marked read beforce closing for sure. Nobody touched the data
files in the meantime.

does the message have an x-mozilla-status line in it? If not, then we will not
be able to remember the read state of the message if the db is regenerated for
whatever reason. How did the message get into your inbox?

I will remote check it using mail -f Inbox: It is unread
Using vi: Status: RO
No other status line.

how did the message get in your inbox? If it doesn't have an x-mozilla-status
line, then Mozilla most likely didn't put it there. Do you have other e-mail
programs putting messages in your inbox? You will need to add an
x-mozilla-status line to that msg's headers for Mozilla to be able to remember
that the message is read.

I really don't know for sure. Once in a while I import mails by replacing an
empty folder with an mbox and then moving to other folders. That might have been
the case here.

well, that's just not supported, unfortunately. Sorry. In order to insert the
x-mozilla-status line, we'd have to rewrite the whole INBOX, and for some people
that could be megabytes and megabytes.

OK. Interesting enought, today I started Mozilla and the message was read. Well,
nevermind. So I am waiting for bug 63389 to get fixed.
