thunderbird 220.127.116.11-1.fc7 quits automatically
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:06 EST
Description of problem:
I have two accounts set up in my thunderbird, one IMAP and the other Gmail POP.
While the IMAP one works fine, whenever I tried to open a message in Gmail inbox
the program quites automatically without leaving any errors in the logs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup 2 accounts in thunderbird, one imap and one pop(preferrably gmail)
2. Send one mail to your gmail account
3. Open the new mail in gmail inbox
thunderbird automatically quits
the mail should have been opened without any errors
Never had this problem in thunderbird 1.5 in FC6.
Try something like this, in gnome-terminal (or whichever terminal emulator you
use) write these commands:
try to download your emails from gmail and quit thunderbird. Then attach please
/tmp/thunderbird-debug-log.txt as an attachment to this bug.

I tried your suggestion, but the log file wasn't created after thunderbird quits.
Are you sure that you have configuration for GMail POP correct (e.g., I
struggled for a moment with the fact, that GMail works only over SSL)? Otherwise
I cannot reproduce this problem, so I am getting suspect, that the problem is in
I found the problem.
If I tried to setup the Gmail account with the built-in Gmail settings of
Thunderbird 2 despite that all the parameters(SSL, TLS, port numbers, etc.) are
correct, it will cause problem.
After I have recreated my gmail account manually, it's working now.
