Mails are not read by movemail with maildir storage
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:24.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/24.0 (Beta/Release) Build ID: 20130910160258 Steps to reproduce: With Linux Mint Debian Edition based on Debian Jessie edition. $ uname -a Linux lilas 3.10-2-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.10.5-1 (2013-08-07) x86_64 GNU/Linux $ cd $ rm -r .thunderbird # for a fresh start $ thunderbird & At the question "Would you like a new email address?", answered "I think I'll configure my account later". Preferences/Preferences/Advanced/Config Editor... Set mail.serverDefaultStoreContractID to @mozilla.org/msgstore/maildirstore;1 Closed the Preferences windows Clicked on "Accounts / Create a new account: / Movemail" Filled all fields with true values and clicked "Finish" Clicked the "Get Mail" button Actual results: Apparently nothing, Inbox was still empty: - /home/testode/.thunderbird/ockm4iiu.default/Mail/localhost/Inbox/cur was empty. - Get Mail did not trigger an error message in the Error Console. - Get Mail did not trigger an error message in the terminal where TB was ran. Expected results: New files in /home/testode/.thunderbird/ockm4iiu.default/Mail/localhost/Inbox/cur. When I kept mail.serverDefaultStoreContractID set to @mozilla.org/msgstore/berkeleystore;1 everything worked well.
WADA, can you please look at this? And if it is real, please link it to your remaining-maildir-bugs meta bug. Thanks.
movemail and maildir are their own account types. So what you are seeing should be a pure movemail problem. Are you still having a problem?
(In reply to Wayne Mery (:wsmwk, use Needinfo for questions) from comment #2) > movemail and maildir are their own account types. So what you are seeing > should be a pure movemail problem. No, only movemail is an account type, as is POP3/IMAP4/News/RSS/Local folders. maildir is a backend how TB stores the messages for the particular account. As is mbox. It is just possible we do not yet support maildir backend for movemail account type. I can check if movemail calls the backend functions properly so that maildir can create the necessary files, or if there is some mbox-specific hard-coded code.

Thanks for correcting my brain dead reconning. Hopefully reporter has sorted it out by now.
Michel, do the above comments clarify for you?
I cannot tell, unfortunately. I did not succeed in using TB in 2013 and I gave it up for KMail, then evolution. I checked my 2013 notes but I did not find anything useful. I am sorry about it but I really cannot remember.
