FC4, Thunderbird, iMail, and . . . no mail.
I am using Fedora Core 4, Thunderbird 1.0.6-1.1.fc4, and trying to connect to a v5.0 iMail server. When connecting, I get the following error message:
The STAT command did not succeed. Error getting message numbers and sizes. Mail server xxx.xxx.xxx responded: failed to lock or parse or multiple access.
I have looked here and there through various bug reports, forums, and even just websites where people have discussed this. It is funny though, that I can never seem to find the same place twice. One of the recommendations was to try to telnet to the site. Here are the results of that:
[~]$ telnet xxx.xxx.xxx 110
Connected to xxx.xxx.xxx (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx).
Escape character is '^]'.
+OK X1 NT-POP3 Server xxx.xxx.xxx (IMail 5.08 5862-1)
+OK maildrop locked and ready
+OK 3 messages (7114 octets)
So I know that I can connect to the server without issue. There was another suggestion about copying the prefs.js to create a user.js. Replacing a ? in one of the userpref lines with an actual server #. The problem I run into with that is my prefs.js file is 347 bytes and contains only the following:
# Mozilla User Preferences
/* Do not edit this file.
* If you make changes to this file while the browser is running,
* the changes will be overwritten when the browser exits.
* To make a manual change to preferences, you can visit the URL about:config
* For more information, see http://www.mozilla.org/unix/customizing.html#prefs
Well, I am confused . . . any constructive suggestions would be appreciated . . . any suggestions would be accepted.
