Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 388261
Junk mail not properly moved in Thunderbird-fc8
Last modified: 2009-07-14 13:55:44 EDT
Description of problem:
Junk mail is not properly moved to the Junk directory despite the proper Junk
settings in Server Settings menu. In particular if one marks a mail as Junk,
this mail stays in place in the Inbox.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
not fixed in latest update thunderbird-184.108.40.206-1.fc8
How reproducible: Always
We found that this bug has been already registered in the upstream database
(https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=324777) and believe that it is
more appropriate to let it be resolved upstream.
Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized upstream bug
tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration
in future updates.
Upstream bug has also some workarounds suggested how to avoid impact of this bug
on your machine.
Thank you for the bug report.
At this point, we're going to only be taking security fixes and major stability
fixes into this release of Fedora. However, we still want to ensure the bug is
fixed in the next version. We'd appreciate if you could test with the latest
version of Thunderbird (220.127.116.11) now available for your distribution and
provide feedback as to whether the problem still exists so we can file a ticket
upstream as soon as possible.
The problem (or feature ?) is still there with Thunderbird 18.104.22.168.
If I mark a mail a Junk, it stays in the Inbox folder and is not moved towards
the Junk folder as it should be.
I can reproduce it too.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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:
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.
