Description Till Maas 2006-12-02 16:55:41 EST
Description of problem:
When I first start sylpheed-claws it shows a wizard to configure it. The wizzard
does not allow to use a non default port for IMAP, but my IMAP server listens on
port 10143. When I finish the wizard sylpheed-claws displays it cannot connect
to my IMAP server, which is true and then suggests that it might be some
out-of-date plugins and quits.

Error Message:
Sylpheed-Claws has detected a configured mailbox, but could not load it. It is
probably provided by an out-of-date external plugin. Please reinstall the plugin
and try again.

Since it won't start I cannot change the port of the IMAP server and therefore
it won't start.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mv ~/.sylpheed-claws/  .sylpheed-claws-bak
2. run sylpheed-claws and configure it with an imap server it cannot connect
because of a wrong port
Actual results:
sylpheed-claws quits

Expected results:
sylpheed-claws provides a way to configure it properly / change the server
configuration when the servers cannot be reached
Comment 1 Colin Leroy 2006-12-08 16:57:32 EST
as a workaround, once it has quit, you can edit ~/.sylpheed-claws/accountrc and
set the correct port there... It's indeed a problem, though.
