The Mail/new will stop it network after clicking on the mail send by fetchmail
with a subject "fetchmail authentication failed xxxxxx"
You will not get any respond on mozilla mail or imap server, as if mozilla mail
is disconnected from the imap server but it isn't.

Attatchment of the whole message untouch is being send as it on the imap server.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Mozilla Mail
2. Click on the "fetchmail authentication failed xxxx" on the Inbox or what ever
3. Watch the status bar going and going without any message comming out

Actual Results:  
Mozilla mail is responding but the connection from Mozilla mail to the imap
server is virtually disconnecter (Actually they are still connecting)

Expected Results:  
Mozilla mail should show the message.
