From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.0rc3) Gecko/20020523 BuildID: 2002052306 One of my three mail accounts is to an IMAP server. I use a dialup modem on my Win98 laptop; it's not always connected to the server. I sometimes compose messages while the modem is off, then send them when I dial up to my ISP. With a POP server, that works fine: I'm saving to a local folder. But, with the IMAP server, I clicked the "Save" button while the modem was disconnected and the Composition window partially froze. Reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: 1.Be disconnected from the network. 2.Select a mail account with an IMAP server, compose a message and click Save button on toolbar. 3.Window will partly freeze. Actual Results: The address fields all were greyed-out. Once I went online, if I clicked "Save" again, nothing seemed to happen. I also couldn't click "Send" to send the message; nothing seemed to happen. I *was* able to copy the text and paste it into another window (Notepad), where I can recover it and send a new draft later. I couldn't copy the addresses, though. Expected Results: Open a dialog box that tells me that the draft couldn't be saved, without greying out the addresses and partly freezing. (I *did* eventually et a dialog box saying that the server couldn't be reached, but the addresses stayed grey after that point.) Additional notes: I'm not sure about the priority. Mozilla doesn't *completely* freeze, but I can't continue my composition. I'll find out in a minute (after I submit this bug :) if I can even close that window or if I'll have to kill Mozilla to recover.
I had the "Copies" preference set to use the IMAP server's Drafts folder.
Um, this isn't the fault of mozilla. It's the fault of the IMAP server for going down.
