Thunderbird 12 trashes emails from local mail spool
Last modified: 2012-05-03 04:50:06 EDT
Description of problem:
Thunderbird 12 trashes mail when moving mail from the local UNIX mail spool. Most of the mails get lost. This is absolutely not acceptable!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always (even in safe mode with all add-ons disabled)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure a local mail spool
2. send some (e.g. four) test messages to this spool (e.g. content "test" subject "test")
3. Get Mail in Thunderbird
Only one message is received instead of four. The mailbox file also contains only a single mail. In my case with specific messages Thunderbird mangles two mails together so that one email contains the header of the next email in the mailbox file.
Each mail should be received and displayed.
Downgrading to Thunderbird 11 fixes the behaviour. Is it possible to revoke Thunderbird 12 until this is fixed? I think this is really critical.
Mozilla is releasing hotfixed version 12.0.1. We have builds here:
Please test them and let us know if you are able to reproduce this issue.
With 12.0.1 the bug is gone. Thanks!
Thanks for letting us know.
