Description of problem:
The gnome mail applet (showing mailbox summary in the panel) is often
unable to check my mailbox (with xDSL (ethernet) connection under a
PIII arch, redhat linux 9 (shrike), and a POP3 mail server.
It seems to expect a standard connection.
When I am not connected, it displays a message, reading I'm not
connected. I don't think anybody needs such a message : people who are
not connected to the internet usually know it !

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Connect to the internet with an ethernet ADSL connection
2.try to make the applet check the mailbox

Is the bug you are reporting:

  1) That the mailcheck applet is unable to check for your mail


  2) When you disconnect from the internet it shows you a message
     saying it can't check your mail
