Imap woe
« on: April 13, 2017, 08:15:12 PM »
I work a lot and my main means of communication over the internet on my laptop.
It will suddenly though decide it is no longer connected.

I am using IMAP now instead of POP3 because I use both my laptop and my desktop.
If I get a message half written on either, I can then finish on the other machine.

The problem is that sometimes it will decide, in the middle of sending a message, that it is no longer connected.
I get a message that sending the mail and/or saving the sent message failed. That is then followed by the compose message window closing after a acknowledge and a message (sometimes a long one) just going away.

It sounds to me like the real problem is your unstable connection.  Any idea what could be causing that?

Also, what mail client are you using?
