Description Jeff Garzik 2005-06-06 08:40:16 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:

Description of problem:
I am a heavy user of FC2-era Mozilla Mail.

When I upgraded to FC4, and ran Thunderbird for the first time, it offered to import my Mozilla Mail configuration/settings/folders for me.  I accepted.  After a short period of time, Thunderbird segfaulted.  Thereafter, each invocation of Thunderbird would result in an immediate segfault.

I removed ~/.thunderbird, configured email manually rather than importing, and am now happily using Thunderbird with all my old email mboxes intact.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup POP and IMAP accounts, in FC2 Mozilla Mail.
2. Setup Local Folders account, in FC2 mozmail.
3. Point Local Folders to non-standard directory (/garz/nsmail in my case).
4. Populate Local Folders with Berkley mboxes, including sub-folders (i.e. Foo.sbd subdirectories containing mboxes)
5. Make sure IMAP account works.
6. Make sure POP account works, and (due to Mail Filters) sends downloaded mail to Local Folders folders.
7. Install FC4 (-not- upgrade).
8. Run Thunderbird, opting to import Mozilla Mail data.

Actual Results:  segfault

Expected Results:  working email
