Superfluous (read: extremely annoying) Dialog box when not able to connect to mail server
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/20060111 Firefox/18.104.22.168 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/20060111 Firefox/126.96.36.199 When a mail account is not able to connect to the mail server, a dialog box pops up with an OK button alerting you of this. This dialog box has caused me mucho grande hair loss. I have my TB setup with no less than 8 mailboxes, and when 1 can't connect, they all cant connect, so I have to click 8 of these dialog boxes all the time. On top of that, I am not able to click get all mail and walk away for any reason because if one of these boxes pops up, it does not continue checking the other mailboxes until i click the OK button. Also, if I leave it running minimized in the background, and the box pops up, my taskbar flashes continuously until I go back into TB and click the OK button. And for the icing on the cake, if I am typing an email and a server cant connect, the box pops up taking focus away from my email message (and my train of thought) so that I can kindly click the OK button and reselect my email message, and try to resume my train of thought until the box shows face again. it' becomes a race to finish my message b4 it may (or may not) pop up again. I do not see why this can't just be displayed on the statusbar or somewhere else unobtrusive? I consider this a critical bug because it severely affects everyday program usage.
