When I click on 'Get Msg', the following line is printed to stderr: Exception : In mail commands Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.create a movemail account 2.get messages from that account 3.
not a smoketest, not a blocker.
Just curious, what is movemail?
<qa_ignore> It's the mechanism by which mozilla slurps local unix mail spools, ie /var/spool/mail/username </qa_ignore>
Marking these all WORKSFORME sorry about lack of response but were very overloaded here. Only reopen the bug if you can reproduce with the following steps: 1) Download the latest nightly (or 0.9.6 which should be out RSN) 2) Create a new profile 3) test the bug again If it still occurs go ahead and reopen the bug. Again sorry about no response were quite overloaded here and understaffed.
Might be, this is a duplicate of bug 56671. Have you tried changing the permission of /var/spool/mail to 1777?
-> movemail owner
This should have been working for a while. If not, please open a new bug.
