Description

17 years ago
I'm a dialup user, over 56K from home.

I have a rather large INBOX, on the order of 9000 - 10,000 messages. It usually
takes around 90 seconds for the browser application to exit when I have used
mail during that session. I don't do anything magic, just open up mail (which
takes about 2 minutes, see bug
http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=117506 for information on that
issue. Closing the mailnews window is not enough to do this -- I have to exit
the browser, at which time IMAP does something on component exit I imagine.
There is a lot of network traffic happening as evidenced by lots of blinking
lights on my modem.

This shutdown is not always reproducable. Not sure what can trigger it. When I
find out, I'll attach the details here.

syd, here's how to generate an imap protocol log.

My guess is that you one of two settings turned on:

Empty trash on exit
Compact Inbox on exit

and that sometimes it takes a long time to do these. A protocol log would tell
us why. I thought we were telling the imap server not to tell us about the
messages that were deleted when we empty trash, but we might be getting back
logs of expunge responses for the compact inbox on exit command.
