Description John Poelstra 2008-03-25 19:19:06 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
try on.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm -qi thunderbird
Name        : thunderbird                  Relocations: (not relocatable)
Version     :                          Vendor: Red Hat, Inc.

Summary     : Mozilla Thunderbird mail/newsgroup client
Description :
Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client.

How reproducible:
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
3. Sync
Actual results:
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
goes offline.

Expected results:
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.
