But when a server error occurs, like "POP server busy", a message box is displayed with this message and no mail retrieval is started ever after! So when I return to my pc, I have to click the message away and manually start retrieving my mail from the servers. The error is only temporary, so I would like to have Mozilla continue trying to get mail from the server Possible solutions are: - display errors in a separate log window. - display every error in a separate message box (causing a probable cludge on the desktop) BUT IN ANY CASE: keep the mail retrieval going! :-) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open the Mail window 2.Wait until an error occurs on the POP server 3.See an error message box appear 4. Mail retrieval stops Actual Results: The message box is waiting for acknowledgement Expected Results: Keep the mail retrieval process going
