Description Will McCammon 2004-12-03 00:31:20 UTC

Description of problem:
upon configuring thunderbird to connect to an imap account on a remote
server, nearly all mail in the Sent folder is deleted.  that is, all
mail older than 15 days is inadvertantly deleted with the exception of
the original placeholder message, "DON'T DELETE THIS MESSAGE -- FOLDER
INTERNAL DATA." mail in all other folders intact.  evolution and
groupoffice do not produce this error.

ls -l Sent (before connecting to server via imap)

ls -l Sent (after connecting to server via imap)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure account server settings as seen in screenshot
2. configure account copies & folders as seen in screenshot-1
3. configure account offline & diskspace as seen in screenshot-2
4. examine Sent folder filesize on imap server (excess of 70M)
5. examine Sent folder mail dates on imap server (excess of 15 days old)
6. connect to imap server by clicking on Get Mail
7. examine contents of Sent by clicking on imap Sent folder
8. log into the imap server via ssh and verify filesize change.


Actual Results:  *dropped jaw* as i realized all my sent mail from the
past year is gone. 

Expected Results:  *big smile* as i realize what an awesome product
i'm using.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Closing per lack of response to previous request for information.
This bug was originally filed against a much earlier version of Fedora
Core, and significant changes have taken place since the last version
for which this bug is confirmed.

Note that FC3 and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy for security
fixes only.  Please install a still supported version and retest.  If
it still occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct
version.  Otherwise, if this a security issue, please change the
product to Fedora Legacy.  Thanks, and we are sorry that we did not
get to this bug earlier.
