User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322) Build Identifier: version 0.9 (20041103) I use a SOCKS proxy to connect to *some* of my accounts while others use a direct connection (via exceptions in the proxy settings). The SOCKS proxy always runs on localhost:1080, but sometimes I forget to start it. If the SOCKS server is not up and running Thunderbird shows no error message when I try to connect to the email accounts that make use of the SOCKS proxy. It looks as if there are no new messages on the server which is very very confusing. It should show a message to the effect "Cannot connect to the configured SOCKS proxy" or "Cannot connect to the mail server" I haven't checked on the HTTP proxy but I suspect it suffers of the same issue. I am not sure if it has anything to do with the fact that I am using the loopback interface, maybe it shows an error message when using another IP address but for localhost it shows no error. Thanks for a future fix. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Configure a SOCKS server on localhost:1080 (usually you can simply use ssh - D to forward localhost:1080 or putty and enable dynamic port forwarding) 2. Verify that you can access a mail server via the configured SOCKS proxy 3. Kill the SOCKS proxy 4. Try and connect to the email server again 5. No error message is shown in Thunderbird, it looks as if the connection worked fine and there's no new mail on the server (which is not the case). Actual Results: No error message is shown in Thunderbird, it looks as if the connection worked fine and there's no new mail on the server (which is not the case). Expected Results: Show an error message "Cannot connect to the email or proxy server"
