Description George 2018-04-20 18:44:40 CEST

1. Activate "Work offline"
2. Refresh RSS feeds

A message dialog should appear suggesting to go online or override for N minutes.

Feeds are refreshed.

Actually "Work offline" seems to have no effect on IMAP either. I can click "Get Mail" successfully fetch mail even while "Work offline" is active.

The only thing which "Work offline" seems to do is to stop the automatic NOOP and automatic periodic mail fetching.

Perhaps this (imo buggy) behavior could be considered as an unexpected temporary "solution" to bug#4008.

Correction: I am sorry, please ignore previous comment as it seems to be valid only in "override" mode.
Comment 3 Andrej Kacian 2018-06-06 09:46:11 CEST
You are right, we only check for offline mode in RSSyl in some cases where feed updates happen, not all of them. Notably in the function that handles periodic update in the background.

There were two or three more places where the offline check was missing. Thanks for bringing this up.
