The "work offline" checkbox in the Thunderbird profile manager doesn't seem to have any effect when you launch Thunderbird from the profile manager. If you set that checkbox, exit, and then launch Thunderbird normally it also doesn't have any effect. If I run the profile manager again that checkbox is unchecked, so it doesn't seem to be sticky.
This problem occurs with both with the 2.0 release and the version 22.214.171.124pre(20070528) nightly build, but not the 126.96.36.199 build. I'm using XP Pro SP2, use the same profile for all three versions, and have both POP and IMAP accounts.
WFM for me on linux. Didn't test the sticky part, but at least the checkbox is obeyed.

I also to see this problem on TB 18.104.22.168 (20070728) under Win XP SP2
In Tools > Options > Advanced > Offline
When starting up:
(*) Remember previous online state
Send unsent messages when going online? (*) Ask me
Download messages for offline use when going offline? (*) No
checkbox only worked for me with option "ask me". otherwise it wouldn't honor the profile override (or what I thought was an override). and even then it had the audacity to prompt me during startup with a default of "work online?"
boy that was an irritating discovery.
I am using Thunderbird 22.214.171.124 with Windows Vista Home Premium. When I open Thunderbird with the profile amanager, the work offline button has no effect. In the recent past it worked, but not today.
can you confirm?
Works for me TB3a1, overriding works just fine.
Win 2000 with SP4; Thunderbird 126.96.36.199
The original report is correct. In version 1.5 the check box worked.
Now I get the irritating dialup window as soon as Thunderbird starts.
How do I get version 3 beta that is mentioned in comment #6 ?
You can get these from here
tb3a2 coming out soon too
Eric, iirc you are not able to run trunk. Is that correct?
Parkhideh, does version 3 work for you?
(offline is getting lots of attention on trunk, so it would be useful to know if trunk works for you)

Wayne, comment #6 is correct. Version 3.01a does honour the Work Offline checkbox.
So this bug is fixed in Shredder 3.0 alpha / beta trunk builds, but not in 2.0.0.x?

apparently this and bug 382302 fixed on trunk - haven't found what fixed it.
probably broken by bug 359134, which implements Bug 312793 and Bug 76111.
If this is wanted in 2.0 someone will need to find what fixed it and nominate a patch to go into gecko 1.8/TB2.
