Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 451508
unhelpful error warnings
Last modified: 2008-07-10 08:20:18 EDT
Description of problem:
When fetching mail, you might get a warning about being unable to refresh a
folder, but it doesn't say which folder. Opening the debug logs from the help
menu doesn't help (they remain totally blank). When dealing with mail from
multiple servers, and with multiple folders, this lack of information makes it
hard to manage.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Any time there's a problem fetching mail (e.g. network was down when you tried
to fetch mail, mail server was extremely busy, etc.).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to get mail when there's some sort of server/network problem.
2. See a useless error warning "Error while Refreshing folder".
To be told, somewhere, WHICH specific thing that it couldn't do (e.g. the folder
name, and/or which mail server).
Definitely agree, but this would best be handled upstream. Please see  for
