I noticed this when one of my mail servers were taken down for maintainance. I kept gettitng error messages about not being able to connect to the server, so I wanted to turn off the feature that automatically gets new email. I unchecked the box, but the error messages kept coming. After closing Mozilla, and opeining it again, then it stopped automatically checking for messages. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to Edit -> Mail & Newsgroup Account Settings. 2. Then pick one of your accounts (I used a POP account) and select the "Server Settings". 3. Then uncheck the "check for messages every" box. Actual Results: It kept checking for mail messages on the account I unchecked that box for. Expected Results: Stop checking for mail messages on the account I unchecked that box for.
I can confirm on Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5a) Gecko/20030529 I'm wondering if this is the expected behavior. Many mozilla settings don't actually take effect until after a restart. Then again, many more do. Marking as New.
