Re: [Evolution] Error fetching message info: unknown body response


Using thunderbird I made a copy of the folder where error is reported.
Resulting folder shows exactly the same error.
I suppose it means that thunderbird has no problems reading and copying the message in question.

Would you suggest additional diagnostics?

Is it possible to do similar trance in thunderbird?

A simple stand alone application to retrieve a single message by its UID?

it's the message with UID 1717. It might be interesting whether
Thunderbird shows it at all in the UI. If it does, then maybe it uses
different way to get the headers (like getting whole message instead).

However, based on Thunderbird behavior - is it possible to make
something to ignore invalid response and keep processing emails?
As mentioned above, it can be that Thunderbird reads the message
headers differently, if at all. In this particular case, where the
response says "the next N bytes are the value" (the parser simply
doesn't interpret it, because it relies on valid response from the
server), I'd say no, this particular issue cannot be "simply ignored".
There can be added some more or less bizarre workarounds "if something
goes wrong", but I do not think it worth it. The real fix is to let the
server developers know and let them fix it. With that everyone will
benefit, not only Evolution.
