Re: can't fetch mail

Sorry for the previous top-post.  New info below.

Thanks Albrecht, but that produces no output.  Including mbox-mbox in the debug list does provide appropriate output, so I at least know G_MESSAGES_DEBUG is working.  It also does show appropriate output when I send a message.  What would cause balsa to not even try to do a pop3 fetch?  I've confirmed that my configured  POP3 servers are set to check for mail on startup.

Hi Jack:

A new problem just cropped up for me this morning.  It used to be when I "Get new mail" I'd get a popup showing each of the servers from which I POP3 fetch mail, showing the status and progrss of each.  Now, I just get a popup "Checking mail" but it doesn't show any of the servers, and only stays up for less than a second.  I can use my IMAP connection to see that I do have new mail.  Using $G_MESSAGES_DEBUG="mbox-pop3" produces no output.  It seems like it's just silently failing to even try to do a pop3 fetch.

You might try with “G_MESSAGES_DEBUG=libnetclient” which dumps all low-level network traffic and see if the remote POP3 server reports any new messages for you: after logging in successfully, Balsa should send a line reading (time stamp etc. omitted)

DEBUG[libnetclient]: W 'LIST'

and the remote server should send a list of new messages (one line for each message), terminated by a line only containing a single dot:

DEBUG[libnetclient]: R '+OK scan listing follows'
[the list of new message uid's, may be completely empty]
DEBUG[libnetclient]: R '.'

Please DO NOT post the contents of the debug dump to the list, as is contains your password!

Hope this helps,
Running with "G_MESSAGES_DEBUG-all" I see in the output

** (balsa:8879): DEBUG: 17:43:34.702: Network is unavailable (Sun 05 Jun 2022 05:43:34 PM EDT)

but I have no idea if this really indicates some network problem or is just a red herring (false lead) as balsa is able to send messages by smtp.  Next step will be to debug and look for a backtrace from the place that message is printed.
