From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.9+) Gecko/20020305 BuildID: 2002030508 After mail is closed it seems to continue to poll IMAP accounts. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open mailnews and check an imap account (with turbo enabled). 2. Close mail. 3. Open account using pine. 4. Wait until recheck interval has passed; Pine will report that session is now read-only because another process is accessing the folder. Actual Results: Mailnews seems to be checking the accounts after it has been closed. Expected Results: Once mail is closed it should stop checking. If quicklaunch is closed and all mozilla instances are exited the interruptions cease to happen.
to get that error message, do you have to run mozilla on the same machine that you run pine?
I wonder if we could use something like netstat to see if our application has any open connections to the imap server, instead of having to see if pine detects them.
I've talked to a few people and I'm wondering if this is anticipated functionality. I've been told that if you open mozilla, then check your mail, and close mail but not the browsers etc. that your mail should still be checked. Is this correct? The scenario I described had mozilla and the imap server being seperate machines. I would test with netstat but I do not have access to the machines set up with this configuration right now.
So, does this still happen with a recent build? -M
Summary: imap accounts polled after mail closed if turbo enabled → Do not check IMAP accounts for new mail if Mail is closed
