Compose email.

Comment 1 Matěj Cepl 2008-01-24 23:16:06 UTC
Dan, sorry for bothering, but are you able to reproduce this with the upstream
binary? I cannot find to reproduce this in the upstream bugzilla (closest ones
are https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=392774, but it is not what you
describe), so I would like to know whether it is more likely ours or upstream bug.

Also, could we get SMTP logs to see whether *anything* is going on when you go
online? Set these two variables:

export NSPR_LOG_MODULES=smtp:5
export NSPR_LOG_FILE=/tmp/thunderbird-smtp-log.txt

and run Thunderbird and reproduce with one message (switch offline, send message
for later, switch online, wait 30s, quit)?

What happens?

Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2008-01-25 14:03:31 UTC
No output the log file is empty.

Well firefox is also buggy, and is not downloading complete files.  So no I have
not tested the upstream version of thunderbird.

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 04:52:48 UTC
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 23:26:01 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2009-07-14 17:55:50 UTC
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
