KMail 1,000,000,000th Second Bug Looms

If you did not heed our warning from six months ago and are still using KMail < 1.0.29.1 (from KDE 1.x), you are advised to please upgrade to KDE 2.2 (or KDE 2.1.x) immediately. In about a week the bizarre KMail 1,000,000,000th second bug will strike, which can cause corruption of your mail folders. Details about the bug are available here.

The KMail developers recommend that users update to KDE 2.2, which includes a newer KMail with many other bugs fixed and many new features. According to KMail developer Daniel Naber,

The new version of KMail will use old mail files without problems.
However, once the new version is installed one should not switch back to
the old version because of changes in the index files and configuration
file. Just to be sure, we recommend that users make a backup of their mail
folder (~/Mail) and compress all folders before switching to the new
version.

I am using Mozilla Build #2004083008
I get this error of "null byte in data" only when I try to send a Word file through the Comcast SMTP server. TXT, PDF, ZIP, etc., are just fine but not DOC.

It there is a requirement for authentication then be sure that big brother is watching.

In reference to your mail , we would like bring to your attention that you need to connect to the TATA Indicom dial-up service in order to send mails using our SMTP server through any email client.

Kindly note that when you are connected to any other ISP/Cable service you need to use the respective SMTP server address provided by the respective service provider

This is just not right! I am unable to send mails from my office account (VSNL) when I'm at home(BSNL). What you are doing is unfair and I believe that many people would agree with me.

sir we are unable to send the messages through the outlook express and we are getting the error as

Please complain to your email provider, not here. This is the newsboard of KDE, an Open Source project that is completely unrelated to your email problems.

Hello?

Do you all mistake this KDE news(!) board for a support forum for some broken internet service provider?

Hint: It's not. Not only is this extremely off-topic here, your chances to get the reply you're looking for are also infinitesimally small.

U should change the smtp settings as 'mail.vsnl.net'
bcoz the pop & smtp should be 'mail.vsnl.net' try to change the settings u will be able to send the mails


By Manju at Thu, 2006/10/19 - 5:00am

The Problem seems to be internet connection.

Are you trying to send email from VSNL account, using some other company's internet, like BSNL etc.

In that case the mail will not be sent. You have to be conected to internet using VSNL account to send email thru vsnl.


By Rajat Jain at Mon, 2007/02/05 - 6:00am

> The Problem seems to be internet connection.

There's no problem if it's a good connection.

> Are you trying to send email from VSNL account, using some other company's > internet, like BSNL etc.

What, if so? BSNL gonna eat VSNL? GRRR.

> In that case the mail will not be sent.

Why? The mail swallowed by ISPs?

> You have to be conected to internet using VSNL account to send email thru > vsnl.

Oh! Oh! So VSNL is something terrible. Great monster. Oops, I never understood why I could sign-in to yahoo account, possibly because I'm using yahoo connection.

can't recieve or send on internet explorer


By beverly schneider at Fri, 2005/08/26 - 5:00am

you cannot send email because yahoo is now requiring you to authenticate your message before sending it.this is because of email SPAM. to check if your yahoo authentication is enable try to log in to your yahoo account using the internet explorer.notice if you try to compose a new message then send it,yahoo will ask you to authenticate it(like asking you to input the letters or numbers you see on a black box). if it does then write a letter to yahoo tech support to disable that setting. it fixes my yahoo account.


By chubi at Tue, 2005/09/06 - 5:00am

In an attempt to control unsolicited email (spam), some Internet service providers will block port 25. All email sent via the Internet is routed through port 25, the port used for communication between an email client and an email server. Port 25 blocking allows ISPs to block spam sent out through their networks. If you are experiencing technical difficulties when sending via your email client (such as Outlook), then your ISP may block port 25. For these cases, you will need to change the SMTP port from 25 to 587 in your email client.
If this is not what you needed to know, check out our Online Help Desk. Visit it any time by logging into your Yahoo! Mail account and clicking on the "Help" link located in the upper right-hand corner.

what was the solution to this error message?


By sarah at Tue, 2006/09/26 - 5:00am

This solved my problem of "Server Error: 530, Error Number: 0x800CCC78."

Open up Outlook Express
Click on "Tools"
Click "Accounts"
Click "Mail"
Click on your Email account in the dialog box
Click on "Properties"
Click on "Servers"
check the box "My server requires authentication"

P.S.: Make sure your password is correct.
