The mail server responded: invalid mask. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. start thunderbird (to an imap server) 2. get the alert 3. click OK (to continue) Actual Results: got the alert message then continued to use thunderbird. Expected Results: no Alert, or better message about the condition so that I could do something about it.
that message is coming from your imap server... if you generate and attach/e-mail me an imap protocol log, I might be able to tell you more. http://www.mozilla.org/quality/mailnews/mail-troubleshoot.html#imap

I also had the same problem and attached a log (didn't seem to have one earlier). It seems that this occurs when connecting to dovecot servers. Some more information about is from a dovecot forum can be found at: http://www.dovecot.org/pipermail/dovecot/2003-May/001469.html
I don't know why this is still "unconfirmed". There are numerous references on the Internet. Example: http://forum.powweb.com/showthread.php?t=35531 (quote) 2) IMAP Server Error message: Invalid mask. This appears to only affect IMAP with Mozilla based mail applications like Thunderbird, Mozilla Mail, and possibly Netscape Mail. This message is because your mail application issued a command to UW-IMAP that was ignored by the server for security reasons. Dovecot does not ignore this command and considers it a security problem. The simplest way to fix this is to delete your imap account setting for this account, and then set it up again. (end quote) Unfortunately the solution isn't quite so simple for me. I have several IMAP accounts and I don't know which one is generating the error msg.
not a 1.5 blocker. would consider a fix if one appeared.

(In reply to comment #6) > not a 1.5 blocker. would consider a fix if one appeared. There just might be one. I went into the Server Settings/Advanced for all my IMAP accounts and deleted all the data in all the "namespace" strings on each one. For each account, one of three things happened after subsequent logins: #1. The namespace fields remained empty, OR #2. The namespace fields were refilled with the same strings they had before, OR #3. The namespace fields were now filled with different strings. In all cases, my ability to login and read mail was unharmed, and the error msg went away and has not returned. Connection, or coincidence? I don't know.
yes, clearing out the namespaces would fix it.
(In reply to comment #8) > yes, clearing out the namespaces would fix it. Can this now be promoted from "unconfirmed" to "new" so that it doesn't get caught by the new auto-expire policy?
Please comment if you still see this problem, or you know it went away. reporter email address is dead
