[DOGFOOD] [REGRESSION]News and POP not working in todays builds


(MailNews Core :: Networking, defect, P3)



(Not tracked)



(Reporter: mscott, Assigned: mscott)


(Whiteboard: [PDT+])

Using the 11/23 release build from this morning, I can no longer read
newsgroups. I can select a newsgroup and it says downloading headers...but the
thread pane is never populated with the articles.

Sspitzer is on vacation till the end of the week so I'll look into this one

Not good.
I am thinking this is migration problem since I used yesterday's migration
without this problem.
But today's build with this problem. Scott, Are you using today's migration?
OS: Windows NT → All
Hardware: PC → All
Summary: [DOGFOOD] [REGRESSION]News isn't working in todays builds → [DOGFOOD] [REGRESSION]News and POP not working in todays builds
Additional info using nov23-08 commercial builds (I used linux and mac, can't
launch my win32):

POP mail is not working either and it is suspected to be the same problem as
scott reported for news.

If you use an existing POP account, you can see the headers already downloaded
in previous builds, but cannot get new messages. If you've displayed a folder
(already populated) then switch to another folder, the status bar indicates the
loading is done, but the thread pane remains constant at the display of the
original folder contents.

If you add a new POP account, you can't get messages at all.  Status bar
indicates you've retrieved headers but the thread pane remains blank.

Changed Platform and OS to All, changed summary to reflect POP.
Target Milestone: M12
Turns out this is a backend bug in mailnews and isn't related to migration.
I have a fix for it and pop and news are both working for me again.

I'll land this tonight.
Target Milestone: M12
Oh, and in response to Karen's comments, the news (and POP) problem happens on
new accounts and new profiles created with todays builds.
