Obviously this is easy to workaround but it shouldn't begin a new mailcheck while one is already in progress. Especially in the case where xx==1. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set 'check mail every xx minutes' to 1 minute. 2. Send self a very large attachment which will take more than 1 minute to download. 3. That's it. Actual Results: Kept restarting the mail download Expected Results: Waited until current processes were finished before checking again.
UNABLE to reproduce the bug. 1. i've sent myself a 1MB mail 2. set downloadspeed to 1kb/s 3. checked for mail 4. waited 30 minutes actual and expected result: the download of the mail was still running and TB had NOT reinitiated the mail check. --> WFM

I presently have no way to throttle my download so I cant test, but what was your setting of "automatically check mail every <xx> minutes" set too ? As i read your text you tested with a manual check mail ?

TB Version 1.0 (20041206) on Win2k Bennett Foddy: what TB Version are you using? Can you reproduce the bug with a recent nightly?
I was using TB 1.02, on a connection giving about 1kb/sec, downloading mail with large pdf attachments. It is reproducible here, but I guess it's also possibly due to some internal timeout if there s no data received for a certain length of time. It *seems* to be fixed by setting the mail checker to 20 instead of 10 minutes, but then again echinacea tablets *seem* to prevent me from getting colds.
