Description

16 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20021221
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20021221

Attached is a sample message which cannot be downloaded using IMAP with Mozilla
1.3a. If this (broken) message is within a folder of many message Mozilla is
unable to download past this message.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Place attach mail file (called 'brokenmail') on the server
2. Edit .mailboxlist on the server to add the new brokenmail file as a valid
IMAP folder
3. Connect to this mailserver using IMAP in Mozilla 1.3a


Actual Results:  
This (broken) message (which is SPAM that I actually received) never downloads.
In a larger folder with many message it may not be immediately apparent which
message is causing the problem. I found this one with some trial and error.

Expected Results:  
Downloaded the message, regardless of any problems associated with it. Or, at
least continued with the remaining messages.

it's probably interesting to see an imap protocol log for this:

imap log file attempting to retrieve broken message

While Mozilla is trying to download the message (you double-click on the
message to open it) the tail of the imap log looks like this:
2868[1deffc0]: allen-sauer.com:S-imap/brokenmail:CreateNewLineFromSocket: To:
fred@ALLEN-SAUER.COM
2868[1deffc0]: allen-sauer.com:S-imap/brokenmail:CreateNewLineFromSocket: From:

After waiting a while, hitting escape or stop button adds two more lines to the
end of the log:
2868[1deffc0]: allen-sauer.com:S-imap/brokenmail:CreateNewLineFromSocket:

2868[1deffc0]: allen-sauer.com:S-imap/brokenmail:STREAM:CLOSE: Abort Message

This attachment is the entire imap log (log level 5) which includes the above
snippets.

Can you try this with a recent 1.5 build, and if it works for you, resolve the
bug as Works for Me? I believe this is a dup of a bug I fixed a couple weeks
ago. Thx.
