Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6
Build Identifier: version 1.0.6 (20050716)

I have 3 POP3 email accounts.  Two are at pop-server.nc.rr.com.  Another is not
but it shares the same problem.  At start-up or on any other means (that I know
of to download email, including CTRL-T, SHIFT-CTRL-T, individually off the
download icon, the File/Get New Messages pulldown, etc) the best I can get is
the status bar message "Receiving: message 1 of n".  For one account, this
status message remains though nothing appears to be happening.  For others,
including the other account on the same mail server, the message goes away after
a couple of seconds though again, nothing happens.  I have checked the forums,
attempted most everything suggested at mozillazine and elsewhere, even did the
old M$ trick of rebooting.  Nothing makes a difference.  No new email has
download since 31 Aug.  The cursed Symantec AntiVirus which I'm forced to run
every week, last ran over a day before email stopped downloading.  It
"quarantines" all the time but I restore every time but that's been going on for
months.  However, I tried with AntiVirus disabled.  I finally ran with options
to take a log but nothing stands out to me apart from timeouts which don't
appear to be appropriate given how quickly "nothing happens".  Log follows
(since I don't see a way to attach it):

I vote for this bug! Using TB v1.5.0.10 Every month or so my messages"  build up to around 200. I attempt to download the messages and get a statusbar message "downloading 1 of 204. First attempt fails with no other message. Second attempt produces a messagebox saying "Connection to POP3 server timed out". I have reset the timeout period from 60 seconds default to 9600 seconds without result. I have set about:config mail.check_all_IMAP__for_new = "true". No result. Message folders are compacted. MS Outlook is able to download the messages.
It does not appear to be related to the age of emails, the "read" status as reported in another bug or the size of the emails. Sole criterion seems to be number of emails. 

Please. Please help!
Similar bugs: 323486, 340382, 342256, possibly 359677, 376360.

Simon, does this issue still occur with Thunderbird 3 Beta 2 ? (it can be found at http://www.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/thunderbird/3.0b2/ )

Does it occur only with POP or does it involve IMAP as well? There's new IMAP code that landed in Thunderbird 3 Beta 2.

I barely remember this issue from FOUR YEARS AGO.  I'm at 2.0.0.21 now and don't recall having this issue again since originally reported; don't remember how I worked around it but apparently I did.  Thanks!
