Sensing that there's no connection, it goes into offline mode, sort of. Upon reconnecting, I cannot get it back to online mode unless I close and reopen. This did not occur in previous betas. I could always get my mail after it asks me to go back to online mode. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1) Disrupt network connection, sleep/hibernate computer. 2) Reconnect. 3) Attempt to manually check E-mail. 4) Toggle Work Offline buttons. Actual Results: 1) Eudora goes into "offline" mode, indicated by the bottom-left lightbulb icon going grey. I assume it happens because it tries to check E-mail (I have it checking every minute) when I lose my network connection or I sleep/hibernate the computer. 2) When I get reconnected and click on Get Mail, it does nothing. Status bar doesn't not show that it's checking or anything. 3a) I click on the greyed lightbulb, and it says it it downloading Offline content (making me assume it thinks it's really online???). 3b) Or, going to File..Offline, I note that "Work Offline" is uncheckmarked, meaning it also thinks its online. I click on it anyway, and it goes checkmarked. I do it again and it goes uncheckmarked. But still cannot check E-mail after that. 4) Close and reopen Eudora. Lightbulb is yellow and it checks for mail. Expected Results: As seen in previous betas, if it indeed is in offline mode (grey lightbulb), all I need to do to Get Mail and then it will have a popup saying it is offline and whether I want to go online. I accept and then it checks for mail. I assume it goes offline because of auto E-mail checking. That's because sometimes when I turn off the computer and then turn it on again sometimes my network connection kicks in quite fast and it might not have attempted to check E-mail in the interim so it always thinks it's online.
This is probably a duplicate of bug 470274 / bug 473483 where we were seeing problems with going offline and coming back online in TB 3 beta 1.
Yes, it does sound like a duplicate, so I will mark it as such. If you (firstname.lastname@example.org) see this problem in the next beta version of Eudora (due within 3 or 4 weeks) please re-open this bug. Thanks, Matt
