please enable interval mail checking by default
This is a bug because the enterprise user just does not expect it to not occur. A major blocker for me, I plan to change it.
feel free to fix this in the 3.5 branch.
I'll forward port it to trunk once you have finished in branch.
better hurry... 3.5.8 tagging happens on 7 Oct.

What about users who do not always have an internet connection?
KMail then pops up a annoying message box for *every* account saying it
couldn't connect to the server. If you have bad luck, you mess up the order
of the message boxes in which case it's really hard to find the right order
to close them again ;) Maybe something to consider...

this is where Solid should come into play, right? in the kmail code it should
probably not try to do an automatic mail check if the network isn't up...
something like the totally untested attached patch, maybe....

Reopening because of
- Dominik's comment
- although fixed in branches, it is still open in trunk
Strange report, because regular user does not expect the auto check is on. And this is hardly a bug by any means. Besides you should set this option once in your lifetime.
Changing to a wish, because this is not a bug.
Maciej, I completely disagree. An inspiring article about why is here: http://www.joelonsoftware.com/uibook/chapters/fog0000000059.html
I really recommend reading it to everyone. It addresses your statement with the sentence: "Most advanced users use several computers regularly; they upgrade their computer every couple of years, they reinstall their operating system every three weeks."
Thank you for your feature request. Kmail1 is currently unmaintained so we are closing all wishes. Please feel free to reopen a feature request for Kmail2 if it has not already been implemented.
Thank you for your understanding.
Instead of creating a new feature request, please confirm here if the wishlist is still valid for kmail2.
