Even when Edit/Settings/Account Settings/Server Settings/Check for new messages is checked, a value entered (10 minutes) and automatically download new messages is checked, Thunderbird only pulls new messages at startup and when the "get mail" button is pressed.
Maybe same problem as bug 397256.
Magnus, you pointed in comment #1 to just this bug. What is real number of "similar" bug?
Ah, meant to say bug 397295 (which may be a dupe, of this or another of the mentioned bugs).
Doug, I retested SeaMonkey branch 184.108.40.206 mail client. If you check also "Download New Messages Automatically" checkbox, besides "Test for new messages every *** min" - it works. I cannot confirm that it really works in predicted intervals, as I couldn't notice any activity about retrieving mails in statusbar - but new mails appears there in mail client from time to time without my intervention:)
Ooops. It did it properly time or two - and then stopped getting new mails. Like some timer notification was dead. IIRC similar problem was with our IRC client/component
"Download messages" checkbox was unchecked - I would swear I checked it when I set up the account. Is working now, but I'll continue to test to see if it stops.
It definitely stops after a while. I had the interval set at 2 minutes for one account, 3 minutes for another, 10 minutes for a 3rd. All stopped. I've set two of the 3 to 1 minute interval to see if there's a relationship.
changing interval makes no difference. Once stopped, it stays stopped.
Here is bug which may be related somewhat https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=275124
still see this problem using newer build? (based on thunderbird 3 code?) I had, perhaps speculatively, made this dependent on bug 275124. Is it still worse as mentioned in bug 275124?
I doubt you can build TB 3 on BeOS. Serguei ?
(In reply to comment #11) > I doubt you can build TB 3 on BeOS. Serguei ? Correct, however the open-source replacement for BeOS, called Haiku, should be able to build the new version. Right now, several dependencies are outstanding but long-term this should be possible.
(In reply to Magnus Melin from comment #3) > Ah, meant to say bug 397295 (which may be a dupe, of this or another of the > mentioned bugs). 397295 got duped to bug 352107. given the lack of progress for Haiku since 2009 , the fact that both bugs are from the same time frame (and thus perhaps the same), and inability to verify this bug report, I think we close this bug for now. It can always be reopened if it is proved that bug 352107 doesn't fix this.  https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist.cgi?type1-0-0=substring&list_id=1475561&field0-0-0=op_sys&type0-0-1=substring&field0-0-1=keywords&type1-0-1=allwordssubstr&value1-0-1=Haiku&classification=Client%20Software&classification=Components&chfieldto=Now&query_format=advanced&chfieldfrom=2009-01-01&value1-0-0=Haiku&type0-0-0=anywordssubstr&value0-0-0=beos%20linux%20other&field1-0-0=short_desc&field1-0-1=longdesc
