Currently, when we're composing a new email message and go to send it, a non-modal dialog (non-modal on OS X anyway) displays in front of all other windows telling us that the email is being sent. This dialog remains on the screen until the send is complete, at which time the compose window closes and we can continue using Mozilla. Instead, I'd like to hit send, and immediately have the compose window disappear. A message and perhaps a chasing arrows or scrollbar indicator at the bottom of the Mail & Newsgroups window would tell us that the send was occuring in the background. This totally non-modal background send process would allow us to continue to use Mozilla -- composing new messages, reading more email, surfing other webpages. We would not have to wait until the send was complete before we could continue working. I can approximate this behaviour currently by going offline -- I can compose my emails, hit Send Later to store them, then go online and send them all at once. However, this is less than ideal. Every time an email refers to a foreign website, I would need to go online, view that page, then go back offline to send more email. - Adam
Reporter, why do need to go offline? Can't you "Send Later" (in File menu, or Ctrl+Shift+Enter) when online? Anyway, I think bug 82998 wants the same thing. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 82998 ***
