This happens with some TCP/IP links, and to be honest I think it is in the operating systems network stack. It just doesn't time out, and gets stuck somewhere.

Generally you just click the "close connection" button in the status of that account and off you go again.

It doesn't happen to me much on broadband/LAN, I think it's mainly a dialup issue.

Sometimes I've noticed that the light on the status bar stays green simply because the end of session wasn't propagated up to the UI. And by hiding/showing the window it shows the true - disconnected state.

This has been fixed in later releases. Let me know if it pops up again.

I would normally try and ping the mail server if the setup hangs.

The sort of tasks done in the setup phase are:
- retreive identity from options
- find outbox and load it's contents
- run through the outbox and build list of mail to send
- retrieve account server/port and password

At which point the status goes to "connecting". None of those look like they could get stuck easily except the loading Outbox. If it was corrupted or something?

So is this even before you try and send something?

No, I don't have any idea yet.

Is only when i start scribe...

Probably in phase connecting and receiving mail !

for a scenario:
--------------------------
- I clic on icon of scribe
- Scribe start and go try to load email from server (because option load when start is on)
***ok, at this point, on version 1.86 test 11 the status stay, sometime, to "connected...".***

- loading email
***ok, at this point, on version 1.86 test 11 the status stay, sometime, to "Setup...".***

the connection is stang. No possibility to close connection or send any what !

I need to close scribe and reopen again !
