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):
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
