Description

17 years ago
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 :-(
