            Bug ID: 2901
           Summary: please don't disable some interface functions
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: 3.8.1
          Hardware: PC
               URL: http://bugs.debian.org/704617
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P3

          Assignee: users at lists.claws-mail.org

Quoting original submitter:
| Please don't disable interface elements when not really needed, for           
| example:                                                                      
|  * Configuration menu is disabled when the mail check is in progress.         
|  * Preferences windows are modal and make it impossible to continue           
|    writing or reading mails.                                                  
|  * Can't reproduce it now, but opening Compose window used to block           
|    certain menu items.                                                        
| As I understand, this is done to ensure that mail check process (and          
| other things) use consistent settings; however, it's probably better for      
| them to just acquire a copy of the settings when they start, so user can      
| safely change anything without affecting running processes.
