Maemo 5, Version 1.2009.30-14
STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM:
Setup a (pop3) account, move behind a firewall/webproxy,
have Modest look for emails. This won't work, since
the firewall blocks the tcp port used by the pop protocol.
This is a very likely setup inside a company network.
Silently ignore this problem or at most show it in a
nin-intrusive manner e.g. via a small con
A banner pops up every few minutes. Removing that banner
by clicking pops up a dialog box asking to verify the
settings of the pop account. This happens every few
minutes and completely blocks usage.
EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; de; rv:22.214.171.124)
This is the same "can't connect == account settings must be incorrect"
assumption as in bug 3728. I'd mark as duplicate, but since there is an alias
I'll leave it up to Andre.
