If you are sending mail to slow/unresponsive SMTP server, it is possible to quit 
the app while the mail is being sent. If you do this, the mail compose window 
flashes up, then disappears. I think we need a dialog which says "There is mail 
being sent, do you want to send the mail and quit, or quit now?" (See Eudora for 
an exmple).

good point,

How about having the mail_sender-task work as a seperate process,
allowing the user to read mails etc.. while sending a big mail.

Esther,

Does this sound similar to the problem you mentioned in the mail All Hands?

WE do have just such a dialog which is supposed to come up. When I tried this, I
ended up asserting in some nsIPrompt code. Apparently we've already destroyed
the nsIPrompt service which shows dialogs by the time our code is now getting
triggered. So we fail to show the dialog.

This used to work great so something must have changed under the covers.

I have a fix for that, the user will not be able to either close the compose
window (yes, the compose window will stay open during send) or quit the app.
This is part of my work on Message Send progress dialog. If the user really
wants to quit, he/she must first cancel the send though the cancel button on the
progres dialog.

Fixed and checked in. You should not be able to quit or close the compose window
while sending or saving it.

JFD,

When sending large mail I see that the compose windows stays open and I cannot 
close the compose window while send is in progress. But I can quit the 
application when I am sending mail and the compose window remains open untill 
the message is sent. I should not be able to quit the application when sending 
mail is in progress. This happens with or without the prefs that inculde the 
progress dlg.  When I try to do file exit or quit application should also be 
prompted with a dlg reminding send in progress want to send and quit mail or 
quit without sending. I am reopening this bug for the above reasons.  
Linux and win98 I could do file/exit and the 3 pane UI disappeared.  On mac the 
ui disappeared but since the compose window was open I still had the menu bar 
and after which results in a freeze and had to force quit application.
