When I've completed an upgrade from 1.5-Rc2 to the latest build I can't retrieve any mails anymore. The only way to fix this is delete the profile. Download 1.5-rc2 and start over only copying the mailbox files, adressbook file and bookmarks. Steps to reproduce 1 install Mozilla 1.5 rc2 2 copfigure and use it for a while creating a mail user profile using pop 3 upgrade to the latest build. 4 the profile gets corupt and mail retrieval is no longer possbile
and which file in your profile caused this problem ?
Stef, do you have more than one accounts? And if, did every accounts pop server stop retieving mails? What if you stay with the latest build and just create a new profile, create a new account and try getting mails?
I'm using a single account. The problem looks to be in the prefs.js file. I just copied that file and the profile wen't bad again. Removing the prefs.js file and recreating the mailbox fixes the file. I'll have to try the second scenario. I'm not sure which option made the profile go crazy last time as I'm now running 1.5rc2 again.
The problem also seems to seep into the 1.5rc2 build as I've just seen to problem occur again. I'll now setup a fresh account without any old stuff and see if it happens again. It has taken since Oct13 to produce the problem again. I'm hoping that it happens quicker this time as a clean profile with all the settings that I had ain't fun to work with ;-)
What do you mean with "I can't retrieve any mails anymore"? What error do you get?
I get the error can't connect with pop.planet.nl. While the server is available
Created attachment 134202 [details] Prefs.js file with corruption When I use this preferences file I can't no longer retrieve email. When using the preferences backup file I don't have any issues. The mozilla build is 20031025. I only used the build as mentioned before. So the problem seems to be reproducable on my machine. The time to reproduce was less then a day.
Ah, you've a proxy defined in your not working configuration. Proxy is 10.0.0.149:3128 for each service - from http to ssl. Do you have such a proxy in your system? If not, remove these entries, resp. choose "Direct connection to the Internet". Interesting is, that every entry has the same port - http and ftp are not problem?.
This is the problem : user_pref("network.proxy.socks", "10.0.0.149"); -> invalid Please reopen if you are sure that you really have a socks proxy
