Last week I'd not been able to keep Mozilla running to deal with incoming email, and so had approx 1000 new messages in my inbox. When I finally got back online to download them, it hung after downloading the headers. An IMAP protocol log shows that a FETCH command is failing. Mozilla doesn't present any error messages, and you can't exit mozilla normally. From the protocol log, it appears that the command that failed is being cut off in the middle of the list of messages to FETCH. I eventually fixed the problem by setting up a copy of Evolution and deleting 90% or so of those messages (all the spam) by hand. Then mozilla started working perfectly again. I have a sneaking suspicion that I didn't actually save the log, but I'll look.
Oh, and the copy of mozilla that I was using was only a week or so old when I had the problem.
Moz 1.6 limits the length of its hdr fetch commands to 950 bytes, which should be a reasonable length. Do you remember what the error on the FETCH command failing was? Was it a too long command? The log actually cuts the lines at 600 bytes or something, but the whole command is sent to the server.
Please let me know if you can reproduce this, and generate a log. thx.
