[mail_daemon] hangs during mail fetching

Has a Patch: no Platform: All


Fetching process stops after receiving some mails from both of my gmail accounts. For the first account it manages to download several hundreds of emails before it hangs, for another it stops after second mail (actually, sometimes this number differs). In both cases I can see that it continue to consume quite a lot of CPU cycles (in user thread of mail_daemon) which even leads to considerable slow-down of Deskbar ad Tracker. It feels like it can't read some specific mail and can't ignore it falling into some kind of endless loop.

BTW, after hang it doesn't start fetching from the second account, so I had to delete the first one from E-mail preflet to check the second one.

Running mail_daemon from Terminal doesn't show any interesting information.

It would be very helpful if you could start debugging the thread via ProcessController (by clicking on it in "Threads and CPU usage"), and provide a stack trace of it.

Sure, here it is:

probably another bug in the header parser... Would be cool if you could send me the crashing mail. The header would probably enough. (take care to not post sensitive data) maybe its possible to download the mail with beam?

comment:4 Changed 8 years ago by diver

Is there a way to find which mail is the crashing one?

comment:5 Changed 8 years ago by czeidler

if you start the daemon in a terminal you will see the uid of the mail... but just look into your mail inbox there should be a file "Downloading file... uid:xxx" this is the raw header. The crash happen in HeaderFetched, this means the raw header is on the disk and now the attributes are going to be extracted from the header / the file will be renamed to something more meaningful... (Probably there are multiple of these files now)
