If you check "Use global inbox" so that new mail should be stored in the global inbox. After the assistant is finished you can see on the left side under "Local folders" only the two subfolders "Unsent" and "Trash". It is not possible to receive mails now, allthough the email account is created probably. You have to open the "Account settings" first. Go to "Server settings". Click on the button "Advanced.." and be sure that "Global inbox" is choosen and then click on "OK". Then the Global inbox is created and you can receive mails. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a new profile 2. Create a new mailaccount with the assistant 3. Be sure that "Use Global inbox" is checked in the assistant 4. After the assistant is finished, only the folders "Unsent" and "Trash" are created. Actual Results: Only the subfolders "Unsent" and "Trash" are created. Expected Results: Also an "Inbox" should be created so that mail receiving is possible.
Linux too. When you try to get the messages: Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80004003 (NS_ERROR_INVALID_POINTER) [nsIMsgIncomingServer.getNewMessages]" nsresult: "0x80004003 (NS_ERROR_INVALID_POINTER)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://messenger/content/mailCommands.js :: GetNewMessages :: line 20" data: no] Regression from tb2, but not recent. I think I saw it a few months back already but didn't get around to filing.
