Steps to reproduce: 1. start Thunderbird acount creation wizard 2. enter valid aol.com e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org userid and password 3. click "Create Account" 4. Check "I understand the risks", and click "Create account" Result: spins forever and stalls forever at "creating account in backend" (see attached wizard logs) Expected Result: Account to be created Account to be created successfully
anything on the Error Console?
Where does it "spin"? How long did you want? Did you do Wireshark? When I reproduce, it says "Checking password...", then spins a while (30s?), then says "username or password invalid" (which is correct in this case). (That message also comes when something else goes wrong in password check, but that's a different bug.) In Wireshark, I see that TB is trying to log in with IMAP command 'login joe bla', and server says 'NO LOGIN Failed. Incorrect name and/or password...'. So: WORKSFORME.

Ops, sorry, I overread the "*valid* aol.com account". I have one (aim accounts are free).
