    Offline Mode Warning

    There ought to be a popup alert, when one tries to perform an Online operation
    whilst in Offline Mode.

    E.G. At the moment, clicking Selective POP Mail Download whilst in offline mode
    produces a deceptively 'empty' click with no feedback.

    When in offline mode a x-red-crossed network graphic is shown at Pmail's bottom-most right (status bar). OTOH if you can't reach the Web while online than you'll get a pop-up warning.

    I'm well aware of that as I regularly click on it. (I never use the File Menu).

    Well you are not really online in those circumstances - are you?

     

    I still think mine is a useful suggestion - Let's see if others agree/disagree!

    Re: Offline Mode Warning

    If I got you right you expect Pmail warns you you are offline when trying to access the Internet after turning this access offline, right? As I said, I look at the icon first and act accordingly. YMMV.

    I think I didn't explain myself clearly. Pegasus Mail warns you when even while connected to the Web/LAN you can't establish a POP3, IMAP, SMTP or direct connection. My bad.

    And yes, I'm sure your suggestion is welcome. Cheers.
