#478 closed enhancement (fixed)

Change "Mail Transfer..." to "Checking for mails..."

Reported by: Raziel Owned by: damato
Priority: normal Milestone: YAM 2.9
Component: user interface Version: 2.8p1
Severity: trivial Keywords:
Cc: OS Platform:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Release Notes:

when checking for new mails YAM will now show "Checking mails from ..." rather than "Mail Transfer from ..." which was not entirely correct.



Whenever i click on "Get" (or an automated mail check takes place) a message pops up in YAM's main window stating:
"Mail Transfer from myEmail@…"


This message is kind of misleading as it always displays, even if YAM is only checking for new mails on the server and probably not finding any.
If this is the case, no mails will be downloaded, which means YAM is not telling the truth when displaying that message :-)

Enhancement recommendation

I'd like to see the message changed to say something like
"Checking for mails from myEMail@…"

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

(In [7406]) * src/tcp/pop3.c: fixed some PushMethodOnStack() calls having used an

incorrect number for specifying how many arguments will follow.

  • src/tcp/pop3.c, locale/, locale/german.ct: while just checking for mails, YAM will now show a "Checking mails from..." instead of calling in "Mail Transfer from..." as this might be misleading. This closes #478.

Hi Jens,

r7398 r7406
7482 7482 Secure the future of YAM
7483 7483 ;

7485 Checking mails from '%s'
7487 ;

I don't want to be picky, but shouldn't that be "Checking *for* mails from..."?
It sounds like YAM is actually checking the mails for something and not if there are any...

Replying to Raziel:

I think in english language you can use both ways for the same meaning, at least you will find many references to that in various places on the net. That's why I have used the shorter term. I am, however, also not a native speaker so a native english speaker would have to judge on that.
