When you go offline from a dial up connection the mailclient will report an unknown error 80004005 for each and every newsserver that is in your mailfolders. One report seems enough to me. (That is I get the report three times, which happens to be the amount of newsservers I am subscribed to. This bug has been around for many many months.
Reporter: Please include your BuildID in bug reports. For future bug reports, I would recommend using the Bugzilla Helper: http://www.mozilla.org/quality/help/bugzilla-helper.html (among other things, that automagically adds your BuildID)
all builds of the last months 0.7 0.8 ... 0.9.3 currently 2001080110
H: Please try a more recent build to see if that alleviates your problem: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/
Just to clarify: you were just disconnecting the dial-up session and not utilizing our mail/news Offline feature, right?

To Laurel: correct, if I use the offline feature, none of the three errors are reported, which is correct. I prefer however to just cut the connection, if that would result in only one connection lost report, not three identical messages. To Alex: I will try 0.9.4 when it is out, or was there a specific change made to the code recently to deal with this?
H: I would recommend that you try one of the more recent builds anyhow (link above). Like the proverbial butterfly in chaos theory, even a small code change can sometimes make a big impact elsewhere in the program. Considering that your build is a month old, a lot can happen in a month.
