Login dlg for sent folder takes too long to appear
Login dlg for sent folder (on different server) should appear before compose window closes Win32 1999-10-21-11-m11 build Setup: Two IMAP accounts on different servers are set up (for the purpose of this bug, I'll call them server1 and server2); Sent folder is set up on server 2. Steps: 1) Start mail 2) Open the Inbox for server1 and login as necessary 3) Compose a new message 4) Send the message Actual results: The message gets sent and the compose window closes. You may decide to do something else in mail. After about 1-2 minutes (on a 200mhz system), you will get a login dialog for server2 where the copy of the Sent folder resides. This is unexpected. Expected results: Like 4.x, the login dialog for server2 should appear prior to the compose window closing, after you press Send.

Summary: Login dlg for sent folder (on different server) should appear before compose window closes → Login dlg for sent folder takes too long to appear.
I think it's ok that the compose window hides before you get the login dialog. We're hiding the compose window even before the message gets sent successfully in an effort to make it "feel" faster. Of course, if either the send or the FCC fail, we should bring the compose window back up. Now, the performance problem is another matter. It should certainly not take 1-2 minutes to get to the password prompt for the FCC folder. Changing bug summary to reflect this issue. I don't know exactly whose bug this is, but let's start with rhp. Maybe it will require help from mscott too.
Uhh, not sure about how to approach this...the password dialog is from the Copy operation...the copy service is called after the message is first sent successfully. jefft owns that, but if the hits to the server are slow...I'm not sure what we can do here. Of course we could go back to not hiding the compose window, but we've done that for the reasons phil states. Phil, Jeff, anybody...Ideas? - rhp
Hi Jeff, I'm throwing this one over to you...I don't know if there is anything we can really do about this? Just throw it back my way if you want. - rhp
I'll take a look.
(The same type of issue occurs when I file a message to a different server. The login dialog for the other IMAP server I'm filing to does not appear right away and it appears that the file operation was not successful.)

Resolution: --- → WORKSFORME
Recent perfomance tuning and disable the progress bar stuff seems fixed the problem. The dialog box now comes up fast. Mark it as worksforme.
Using build 1999111017 on win98 and linux and build 1999111111 on mac ppc this is fixed. The password dialog for the other IMAP account where the Sent folder is located comes up within 3 seconds on all 3 of my systems. Win98 is 400Mhz, linux is 166 Mhz and Mac is a G3. Verified
