Description

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.2.18) Gecko/20110628 Ubuntu/10.10 (maverick) Firefox/3.6.18
Build ID: 20110628230543

Steps to reproduce:

Click the "Get Mail" button when I'm not connected to the network, or when the network is not working for some reason


Actual results:

- A popup message appears saying Thunderbird cannot connect to the pop server (this is OK)
- At the same time, a message appears in the status bar which says "No messages to download" (this is wrong)


Expected results:

- The popup messags is OK
- The message on the status bar should be similar or identical to the popup message, or anyway clearly indicate that it has been impossible to connect to the server. "No message to download" is very wrong, because it means that you have connected to the server and have checked and that there actually are no messages to download.
