You click OK, and the same window comes up again, and again, and again: the only solution is to keep ALT+F4 pressed to close both windows (the popup window with the message, and the big MailNews window) and then restart MailNews. This happens to me on some POP3 accounts which, for instance, limit logins to one every minute: if you click two times 'get messages' in a minute, a popup window comes and says: 'The PASS command did not succeed. Mail server etc.etc.com responded: [LOGIN-DELAY] Logins must be at least 1 minute apart' You can try this on www.inbox.lv a free mail host. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Create an account on www.inbox.lv 2.Set up the corresponding MailNews POP3 account 3.Try getting mail twice in a minute. Actual Results: A popup windows popped up telling me that logins should be 1 minute apart. I clicked OK, and the window popped up another time, and more, and more and more, until i kept ALT+F4 pressed to close the popup windows and the MailNews main window. Expected Results: It should have told me the error just once, and then return to its normal MailNews behaviour without retrieving mail from that account.
