Unattended email retrieval from multiple accounts interrupted by inability to contact one server
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826 When set each account to check for and automatically retrieve messages from multiple accounts on various ISPs, leaving comptuter on and online while out of the office for several days, the inability to contact one mail server launches an error message window that interrupts further retrieval until the window is closed, which cannot be done until the user returns. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set up multiple accounts to automatically retrieve messages. 2. Leave for a few days, but one of the ISP does some maintenance, making its mail server unavailable for a period of time. 3. Return to find an error message window, no retrievals after that window opened, waiting for user input. Actual Results: Retrieval stalled awaiting user input. Expected Results: Continued to retrieve messages from other accounts, tried again with the ISP whose mail server was unavailable.
