alternative to modal alert mechanism needed
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8 Build Identifier: One of the IMAP servers I have to connect to has a habit of dropping connections and timing out. When this happens, I am interrupted by an Alert box telling me of the problem. I know about the problem, I'm expecting it, and yet I still get interrupted by a modal box. What I'd like to happen, is that the alert should be logged, and then viewed at my leisure. I can think of two ways of handling this... 1) for integration with both firefox and thunderbird I see either a sidebar, or something like the download manager, which shows queued alerts, where each can be acknowledged as necessary. 2) for thunderbird only - it's a message system so why not "deliver" the message into a mailbox, either a box that exists already or a virtual one for alerts. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
