Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Set up thunderbird to check email from an exchange server using the imap protocol. 2.Send that acount a message with a whole bunch of picture attachments say jpegs. 3.check the mail.( see it will only load part of one or more of the images due to bug number 9211 ( https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=92111 ) 4. Go into config editor (Shredder -> Preferences -> Advanced ->config editor & say you'll be careful) 5. filter for fetch_by_chunks and change mail.imap.fetch_by_chunks to be false. Actual Results: Only the first/some/if even one on larger ones image/s come in correctly from the exchange servers message then they partially come in. Expected Results: That all of the images would load in there entirety. I would think that the more specific mail.imap.fetch_by_chunks setting would overide the less specific for all mail servers mail.server.defaults.fetch_by_chunks setting. This also occurs in thunderbird 220.127.116.11 as well. If you change the less specific mail.server.defaults.fetch_by_chunks setting than the full images load. As per the 9211 bur notes this seems to happen on macs more than windows. Also the way preference hierarchy seems to be set up is that the more specific takes precedence as if I manually add the following line to the user_pref(mail.server.serverXX.fetch_by_chunks, false); where XX is a number greater than 1 that corresponds to the exchange servers imap account it overrides any general settings.
mail.imap.fetch_by_chunks is an older preference that is no longer used. It has been replaced by the server-specific version.

Created attachment 382707 [details] [diff] [review] remove the unused pref After looking around with standard8 and mxr it seems that mail.imap.fetch_by_chunks is not used anymore - adding a patch to remove it.
Comment on attachment 382707 [details] [diff] [review] remove the unused pref thx, yes, this moved to being per server with a server default.
