Description Ian Burrell (reporter) 2008-07-09 01:37:32 UTC
When there is a connection failure to a mail server, Email displays a dialog
box with "Unable to connect", a notification message about "bad username or
password", and show the account settings dialog.  This seems to be new
behavior; older versions of modest just displayed the dialog box.

It should be able to detect the difference between a potentially temporary
connection failure and a bad login.   Showing the account settings in the
latter case is helpful.  In the former, it is annoying and is another dialog
box that needs to be closed when there a network problem.

Hm, this is actually the same issue as bug 3728 (and fingers crossed, may
actually be fixed internally).  This one was reported first, but I'll mark it
as duplicate for housekeeping purposes since bug 3728 has had a lot more
