Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 438922
offline synchronization does not work
Last modified: 2008-03-27 13:03:23 EDT
Description of problem:
Selecting "File/Offline/Download Sync Now does not synchronize any of the
selected folders and respective messages. Instead Thunderbird just goes offline
leaving you with no messages that can read.
I would assume this is a regression, but I do not have a previous RHEL instance
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Summary : Mozilla Thunderbird mail/newsgroup client
Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client.
Running as my primary workstation.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Selecting "File/Offline/Download Sync Now
2. Select folders you want to be able read offline
None of the messages are downloaded which is pretty obvious considering I have
thousands of messages in my redhat imap mail folders and thunderbird immediately
Read selected messages offline.
Setting blocker flag as prescribed in email to QE from Ed Rousseau
Closing as NOTABUG
Perhaps there has been a change in the UI? I just noticed that under sync
options "Mail messages" was not checked. I believe it was checked by default in
previous releases. Check the box and sync works.
