I use imap to access my mail at work from home through netscape. After
upgrading to the latest rawhide, when I tried to open my mail, netscape
hangs after clicking on the "get message" button.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.setup an account on a server. enable imap.
2.on another machine, setup netscape to access mail on server through imap.
3.open up the netscape mail app.
4.log into your server through imapd.
5.click on the "get messages button"
6.mail app never pulls over new mails.
I can't reboot my mail server right now and I am able to read my mail by
login into the server and using mutt. I guess I'm stuck for now....
Unfortunately, we really can't fix hangs within the netscape code, as we don't
have access to it. Reporting it to netscape may be the best bet.
