Buildid: 2001-12-13-06 Read messages link on the account central page starts downloading messages. Steps: Create a new pop account Enter the password at the password dialog You will see the green arrow at the account level Click on the account name Then click on the Read Messages link Actual: The messages are downloaded from the server. I thought only get message button would start downloading messages. But we also download messages by clicking on Read Messages. But this will be a problem when the user did not expect this and wanted to leave messages on the server. Now the messages are gone from the server. I don't think we should start downloading message when we click on the Read Messages.. Else for pop accounts it should say Get Messages instead of Read Messages. Jennifer is this behavior okay? Because there has been some requests to not Get Messages in any way other than clicking on Get message button because user might want to leave messages on the server.
Jennifer, what's your opinion on this? I assumed that Read Messages would download your messages for you. reassigning to racham.

That was my thought too, that "Read Messages" would get new messages and display the Inbox. I understand the potential confusion with POP accts, but I would recommend leaving the behavior as it is for now, and see what sort of feedback we get.
Changing to WONTFIX then. If we change our minds, we can reopen.

Verifying as won't fix. I guess for now it is wontfix. I will reopen the bug if I see more bugs reported against this behavior.
