From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1b) Gecko/20020722 BuildID: 2002072204 I use POP to retrieve mail from a company mail server. I also have an external POP account and two news accounts. The system has the mail directory on a VFAT filesystem. After an indeterminate period of mozilla run, clicking the 'Get Msgs' button seems to do nothing for the primary mail account. No new mail is retrieved and the staus bar at the bottom does not change. The get-messages function works for the external POP account and news accounts. I can see that my Inbox is proper; there is a valid file called popstate.dat in the mail directory. The only way to recover from the situation is to close the program and run it again. At that time, the summary folder for Inbox is rebuilt and new messages (if any) are downloaded. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Just keep running mozilla for a few hours 2. 3. Actual Results: When 'Get Msgs' button is clicked, nothing seems to happen - new messages are not retrieved and the status bar at the bottom does not change. Expected Results: New mail should be retrieved.
