Re: How To Tell If Thunderbird Is Responding To 'Get Mail'?
What I see when I click Get Mail when there is nothing incoming is a very rapid blur of messages in the bottom bar and the final one (There are no new messages for ...) stays there until replaced by something else.
Activity Manager tells me when there were no messages to download but does not tell me it tried because I clicked Get Mail.
I'm not using IMAP but POP3, have multiple email accounts being checked, and do not automatically download mail.
This is Thunderbird 24.4.0 on Precise 64-bit.
Hope this helps a bit.
There are more irrational numbers than there are digits in the full expansion of pi.
