For me the /first/ deletion works, but none afterwards. When Mozilla denies deleting new messages (it does simply *nothing*), it is also unable to display another message from the same folder. Clicking on another Mail folder and then back to the first fixes that, but it is still impossible to delete any further mail.
You can't even move the Message you want to delete to the "Trash", simply nothing happens then. But if you do that action (and nothing happens) and you move *another* mail to any other Mailfolder excluding "Trash", the latter mail is moved _and_ the first mail, which should be deleted, is moved to "Trash". The message selection display is *not* updated after this happend!
Using trunk build 20030318 on winxp, linux and macosx deleting mail messages works for me on IMAP and POP accounts. Reporter, can you try a more recent build, if it's still broken for you give more information. Type of account, is message being deleted from Inbox or other folder, what level?
The problem disappeared after I deleted my profile and re-created it. The problem occured with messages from INBOX on a ssl'ed IMAP session.
The actual nightly crashes on my system, so I am unable to verify if this bug is still in a newer build than mine (1.3 final). I'm using a simple POP-Account and it happens with /any/ mail folder. And I don't want to delete my profile as I'm using Mozilla as my mail archive. :)
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312 I have the same problem as #1, only the problem appears intermittant. The only fix I've found is to shutdown mozilla completely, after a restart the problem is gone (most times). Although I can not be 100% certain, the problem seems to be linked to mozilla (on startup) asking me if I want to compact my folders. When I answer yes, the problem often (always?) appears. I've had this problem with 1.3a and 1.3b, and I download all my mail to my local mail folders.
With 1.4a, the Problem is nonexistent.
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030401 The problem is (for me) still there in 1.4a! My setup: - Mozilla 1.4a .tar.gz package from mozilla.org - Red Hat 8 - home directory/local mail folders on nfs - remote pop3 mailserver - my settings/mail folders have been migrated from netscape 3.0 (irix) via netscape 4.x/6.x to mozilla 1.x (I have only had mail problems with mozilla) My session: - Mailnews reader open (without problems so far, mail read/deleted, news read) - New mail coming in -> select Inbox folder, 'Get Msgs' -> 1 new message -> read new message 1a Press 'Delete' button -> nothing happens (except for the visual hints), or 1b Press 'del' on the keyboard -> nothing happens, or 1c Select 'Edit' menu -> 'Delete Message' -> nothing happens, or 1d Context menu (mouse button 2 in message or folder window) -> 'Delete Message' -> nothing happens 2 Select other mail message in same folder (with mouse or keyboard) -> mail is highlighted, but not displayed (display is stuck at last message read) 3 Select other folder -> messages can be selected and read normally - Until I quit Mozilla, the reader is stuck in the above loop 1 -> 2 -> 3 - While in 'condition 2', 'Get Msgs' shows the new messages in the folder, but they are not displayed until after step 3 I have another problem that might be related (at least, this time it appeared right after the above problem): When I'm sending an E-mail, the process gets stuck at 'Copying message to Sent folder' (indefinitely). When I 'Cancel', I'm back at the compose window. The message has been sent correctly however, just not copied to my Sent folder. During all this time, the nfs and pop3 servers have been up and running normally, and mozilla is the only programming accessing the mail folders.
This appears to be a duplicate of Bug 192780 (applies to POP mail only). It has been fixed in 1.4a and subsequent nightly builds, and will be part of the 1.3.1 release as well. For a workaround, see Bug 184959 Comment 19. However, Robert Eggermont, you seem to have a different problem.
(Un)fortunately, I have not been able to trigger the bug since my last post, so maybe it was just something left behind by 1.3 in my .msf files? I'm happy for now.
