Topic #8 This folder is being processed...

Hi,

I always get the error message "This folder is being processed. Please wait until processing is complete to get messages." using Yamb.
It has been on Tb 1.0.x and it still is the same on 1.5b1.
Does anyone have the same problems?
The interval of fetching mail is the same than it has been before. Does it make a difference if  I use SSL?

Hi,

here is a 0.6.5 debug version.
I corrected the timing: many times, it missed the check because of a few missing milliseconds, so that the actual check time was twice what you expected. Now, it seems to be perfect.

to get the debug messages, you need to
  • add a preference in your pref.js file:
    user_pref("browser.dom.window.dump.enabled", true);
  • launch Thunderbird from a terminal with console option:
    thunderbird -console
Messages are output into the launching terminal. (This works o­n Unix and MacOS, I don't know if it's ok with Windows) (as I don't know which OS you're o­n).

I'm using Windows XP.
It works and I'll try to find the reason, but I guess it will take a while...

Another option at least for all, who don't need the poll time in seconds would be an option to just use the usual poll of thunderbird. This way you'd still get the popup notify but would not have these troubles. This should work, shouldn't it?

That would be good, but guess what, I'm stopped by the stupid problem that I'm not able to dynamicaly change the biff time unit between 'Seconds' and 'Minutes'. I just searched for an hour, and nothing...cry

I don't quite understand. You mean in case the user already set the poll time in seconds skipping the yamb polls would result in a 60 times longer poll time?
How is the change usually done? If it's at the start of tb the user would have to restart tb to change the setting. This would not be to bad because you wouldn't change this too often. Or just drop a warning and the user would have to change the settings manually.
Worst case would be two separate extension: o­ne with the possibility to set the time in seconds, o­ne just using the normal poll.
Or did I misunderstand what you said?eek

What I mean is: in the account window, the biff time unit is displayed at the right of the input field. It normally displays the word 'minutes'. So my extension changes it to 'seconds' at the startup. In fact, the change is applied by a static overlay of the MMI, not from the javascript code. And I did not find the way to change it from the code, so no way to update it or even to modify it at startup o­nly if the preference is set.
So, I would be able to deactivate the check in seconds, but the account box would still display 'seconds'. Which I find really annoying confused. The o­nly solution now would be 2 different extensions. Worst case, as you said, and I don't feel like handling these 2 separate extensions.

If you believe it or not: o­n my system I can stop the polling by deleting a message by pressing del.
I know it sounds weird, but I really tried it at least 30 times.
This way it was kind of correlated to the rss-account. There where many messages to be deleted...
But still I think the discussed option would be really great.

Well, a small night to sleep and trying to rethink all available elements in other ways.

Yes, that's really weird. During all my tests, I was sending messages to myself, then deleted them, and I never noticed such a trouble.
