Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 226811
Send & Receive Mail takes an unreasonably long time
Last modified: 2008-03-16 17:36:53 EDT
Description of problem:
The "Send & Receive Mail" dialog sticks around for several minutes (8 or
so)--even if there's relatively little to do. This behavior appears to be
triggered by using an NNTP account.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable an NNTP account in addition to a POP3 one.
2. Click the send/receive mail button.
Is this problem still present on Fedora 8 Test 2 or later?
Yes. Or, some form of it, at least.
The problem appears confined to my GMANE account, where I'm subscribed to about
60 groups. I'm not sure if the problem would occur on any server where there are
that many subscriptions; or if, instead, there is some problem particular to
news.gmane.org. My 21 subscriptions on msnews.microsoft.com update in a matter
of seconds. And Pan updates a similar number of Gmane groups in a matter of seconds.
Moving this upstream. Please see  for further updates.
