Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030516 Mozilla Firebird/0.6
Build Identifier: Mozilla Thunderbird 0.1 (20030723)

While attempting to send an email via smtpgate.email.arizona.edu, mail crashed.
The option "Use secure connection(SSL) When Available" was selected. When I
attempted to send the e-mail, a pop-up box informed me that encryption was
available for use on this particular message, and please see help for more
information about using encryption. I hit ok, and the pop-up went away, and mail
crashed.
This happened several times.
Upon changing "When Available" to "Never", the e-mail was sent without problems.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.set up imap mail account (rdzeigle AT u.arizona.edu) with smtp server of
smtpgate.arizona.edu (Unfortunately, this smtp server requires a valid login...
try using another smtp server that supports ssl??)
2.set the option "use ssl" to When Available 
3.compose mail as normal and attempt to send

Actual Results:  
Thunderbird "stopped responding".

Expected Results:  
Sent the e-mail.

I was using the default theme. No other special configs. (The e-mail account was
imap, and I do have 2 imap accounts set up. Both use the same outgoing server).

I'm am also experiencing this problem on Win98 Second Eddition with both the
20030723 build and the 0.1 Milestone.
It has worked in earlier versions of Thunderbird but sudenly stopped working
after I updated to the 0.1 Milestone. Sadly I can't remember wich build that
worked but it was before the Password Manager was introduced.

Reporter (ongakugainochi), Brian Olsen: is this bug still an issue?

If so, do you get the talkback dialog when the crash occurs?  What's the 
Talkback ID for this crash?
