Comment 1 Rene van Paassen 2003-03-21 14:14:36 UTC
Are you using an ssl connection to the IMAP server? Just found the same problem, 
the new 1.0.8 build has no ssl options, and silently removes the option to use
ssl from your old config files. 

Comment 2 Tonino 2003-03-21 14:21:44 UTC
Yes, sorry I forgot to specify it. I have a courier-imap server with only imaps
and pop3s enabled

Comment 3 Rebeka Marcus 2003-03-21 19:06:14 UTC
I've seen this problem as well.  Looking at the spec file from the source RPM,
it appears that it has the wrong path for the nss and nspr include files.  I
think it should be /usr/include/nss and /usr/include/nspr instead of
/usr/include/mozilla-1.0.1/nss and /usr/include/mozilla-1.0.1/nspr.  I'm doing a
rebuild of the package now to see if this fixes it for me.

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2003-03-21 22:10:08 UTC
*sigh*  Same version of mozilla, headers in different places.

Updated package built and available for now from until it gets through being
requalified by QA.

Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2003-03-25 19:11:04 UTC
Fixed in 1.0.8-9.7x.1
