Odds and Ends: Mail.app ignoring zero body-length messages?; Users receiving xServe G5s

Mail.app ignoring zero body-length messages?; A MacFixIt reader reports that Mail.app is ignoring messages with no body content when retrieved from a POP3 server.

"If a message stored on a POP3 server has no content, Mail.app will fail to download and delete it. If you're quick enough, you can see x/y messages in the status bar, but otherwise there's no UI indication of the problem.

"I missed an important, but zero length, message with all the content in the subject, so it can be quite serious, quite apart from leaving random messages on your mail server.

"The only indication on the local machine is lines like these in console.log:

  • 2004-03-26 16:08:03.654 Mail[353] failed to append message POPMessage: 0x56a0f50 (_rangeOfBytes: Out of bounds)

If you are having a similar issue (make sure the Junk filter is not deleting the messages), let us know at late-breakers@macfixit.com.

Users receiving xServe G5s Marc Klureza just received his xServe G5, which recently began shipping:

"Just to let you know that the single processor G5 Xserve that we ordered in Mid January arrived today (Fri. 3/26/04). According to Apple it was built on the 20th. This was a custom order with an extra 80G HD. I can't wait until Monday to set it up."
