The SirCam virus sends an invalid bodystructure. When Mozilla queries my IMAP server it returns an error. This confuses Messenger and I can't read any more messages from that server. The error message is something like this: * 2034 FETCH (BODYSTRUCTURE (("TEXT" "PLAIN" ("CHARSET" "ISO-8859-1") NIL NIL "q uoted-printable" 102 5 NIL)("APPLICATION" "MIXED" ("NAME" "Band.doc.pif") NIL NI L "base64" 219613 NIL) "MIXED" NIL) 0 NO can't fetch data 4.x ignored the message (left unread) but other messages were still readable.
this bug has not been touched since 2001-07-30, therefore this reminder. Reporter could you please retest with a current mozilla build and let us know if the problem is still present or the bug can be closed.
Sadly I've worked around the problem by upgrading to a server that doesn't generate so many errors, so I'm not in a position to attempt to reproduce the problem :-(
