Ok, thanks for your reply, Hiroyuki! Just a wishlist thing: wouldn't it
be nice then to block "auto check new mail" when a compose window is
opened, or, at least, have the option to block it, in order to avoid
things like "can't save message to outbox"?

And now that I'm busy writing a wishlist, wouldn't it be nice to
have an option to reset the "check for new mail" timer after a manual
"get" or "get all"?

E.g.: when the "auto check new mail" timer is set to 5 minutes:

10:00 auto get new nessages
10:05 auto get new nessages
10:07 manual get new nessages
10:12 auto get new nessages (instead of 10:10)
10:17 auto get new nessages


It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak
aloud and remove all doubt.
