User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7 Build Identifier: Thunderbird 0.4 (20031205) [HTML code for space] in the from field causes an attempt to retrieve POP3 mail to halt, without deleting any emails from the server. The only way to get around this is to use an alternative mailbox access to remove the offending email. Reproducible: Couldn't Reproduce Steps to Reproduce: Actual Results: Could not reproduce the problem because SMTP server would not allow [HTML code for space] to be used in from field. Original problem was observed when two emails existing in mailbox. Both emails caused the problem. Expected Results: Treated the mail as a normal (although badly formatted) email.
After looking more into the problem (after receiving more offending emails today) it seems that it is not the fact that the from field says " " - this just seems to be the way my webmail represents the email. I have attached the entire message source of two emails that causes Thunderbird to halt email download. No emails can be downloaded at all while such emails exist in the mailbox. In the message sources below, I have replaced a couple of addresses with XXXX and YYYY for the sake of privacy, but they apear in the original source as expected.
