I am reading mail via IMAP off an exchange server I use gkrellm as a notification tool for my mail If gkrellm checks the mail while mozilla is performing an IMAP operation (delete/read/etc), the mailnews window hangs and I have to kill the process.
Seth - any experience with gkrellm, should this be WORKSFORME since that's an unsupported app?
steve, from the users comments it sounds like it could be a valid bug. you can have multiple imap clients on the same machine talking to the same server. here's a giant stab in the dark: exchange is doing something interesting when the users fires up gkrellm. perhaps it is dropping the open connections to mozilla and we aren't handling it well. we've had similar things when your network connection goes down, but I thought mscott fixed them. reporter, can you get the imap protocol log when this happens and attach it to the bug report? do you know which version of exchange? see http://www.mozilla.org/quality/mailnews/mail-troubleshoot.html#imap for details on how to get the imap protocol log. steve, if we have an exchange server set up internal, we should try to reproduce.
Summary: MailNews hangs while reading IMAP mail → messenger hangs when reading imap on exchange and running another imap client on the same machine
OK, so now after about half an hour of testing, running gkrellm and fetchmail checking every 2 seconds, and a loop sending me new mail every 3 seconds, I got not one hang. I am currently using build 2000121510. Possibly the mscott fix helped this, if it happened in the last 2 weeks.
Marking WORKSFORME as per comments. Reopen if this reoccurs in the latest nightlies.
