From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC; en-US; rv:1.0rc2) Gecko/20020427
BuildID:    2002042705

Send an email with a big attachment. Try to surf or do other things IN Mozilla
while the email is sending. Result: The "sending mail progress" dialog stays in
foreground and prevents any other action. I think it's a regression.

Reproducible: Always

The 1.5 year old Bug 72628 certainly has a similar description (but on Windows).
 Although it was marked as a duplicate of Bug 72489, the description seems
closer to this one.

You don't need "long" attachments for this to be a real pain.  All you need is a
sluggish uplink connection or smtp(s)/imap(s) server.  Even over my DSL line, it
just took 50 seconds to wait through the "sending" and "saving copy to SENT
folder" for a 2K message.  Typically it is more like 30 seconds, but that's a
long time to just twiddle your thumbs when you could be doing something more useful.

Mozilla 1.1b nightly build 
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS sun4u; en-US; rv:1.1b) Gecko/20020901
Anyway, this build can do other actions even it is slow.

After a quick test with Seamonkey (Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv: Gecko/20070221 SeaMonkey/1.1.1), it seems to be fixed.
