Thx for adding the tool tips.

My distro is Kubuntu 18.04; Plasma 5.12.7. - May 05 2019
> Im not very fan of the idea on on-hover tips because if i put text on it then i need to have internazionalization and get the messages translated to multiple languagues

That's not a good reason. It's open source, others can add translations.

If the icons come from the chosen icon theme then all the more reason to provide on-hover tips so that the clarity of the buttons' functions doesn't depend on that of the icon themes over which you have no control.

Until the causes of the mishaps I described are clear, I must avoid this widget even though others seem to be using it without problems. - May 04 2019
Please add on-hover tips for the buttons. For instance, in the top right corner there are two buttons with arrows pointing down that are identical except for the colors of the arrows. What are their respective functions?

After I saved a customization, the desktop reverted to the initial default. The customization appeared in the list of saved customizations but selecting it didn't bring back my customized desktop back, and I had to re-customize it.

Following this, I noticed that System Settings -> Icons -> Icon Theme has gone missing. This may not be caused by this widget. I mention it in case it might be -- I haven't had the time to look at the code. - May 04 2019

Scaling down the image does not help much. There is still a minimum limit for resizing the widget that wastes space and is bigger than I'd like.

Secondly, there needs to be an option to have no logo, which would free up a lot of space, but it would only help if the minimum resize limit is lowered accordingly.

Removing memory/swap info from the widget is not a satisfactory workaround if you want to keep an eye on those resources. - May 03 2019

Would be even better if the widget were smaller and compact. - Apr 20 2019

Ignore my previous post. I had a theme.conf.user in the directory and it had a background setting which was apparently overriding the one set in theme.conf. - Apr 04 2019
The background image, once set (through theme.conf), can't be changed. Neither editing it in theme.conf nor in System Settings has any effect. - Apr 04 2019

The version is still 1.15.68 -- tested download from here as well as Github.

The same error persists. - Apr 04 2014
No change w/ 1.15.68 :(

Same error as before for the same accounts. - Apr 03 2014
Thanks.

"Timeout" is misleading in this case. A timeout is usually a waiting period after which a process gives up on an action that does not complete.

The setting in question is the time period between email checks (or connection attempts).

If "Autoexit of connect" is the time to wait for a connection attempt to succeed before considering it a failed attempt, then this setting would be better described as a timeout. - Apr 01 2014
Thanks. - Apr 01 2014
Welll... the same error started appearing again but for a different account than before:

argument must be 9-item sequence, not None argument must be 9-item sequence, not None argument must be 9-item sequence, not None Can`t connect to server on Account... - Apr 01 2014
After adding/editing an account, clicking the OK or Cancel buttons closes the config window. To do further configuration (e.g., add/edit another account or change global settings) one has to reopen the config window, which gets tiresome. Clicking the OK/Cancel button should return the window to the top-level state of the Accounts tab, showing the list of accounts - Mar 31 2014
I don't see a setting to specify how often an account should be checked for new email. It's not among the settings for an account (where it should ideally be) nor on the global Settings tab.

Is this planned for the future? - Mar 31 2014
Uninstalled the plasmoid, then installed 1.15.67. Works fine now, no error.

Thanks. - Mar 31 2014
Same issue with the new version you asked me to try...

argument must be 9-item sequence, not None argument must be 9-item sequence, not None argument must be 9-item sequence, not None Can`t connect to server on Account...

I get this error in v. 1.15.66 on Ubuntu 13.10. See: https://github.com/F1ash/kde-plasma-mail-checker/issues/10 - Mar 14 2014

I got the msg asking to install links or elinks even though I have elinks in the PATH. This might be a bug in the script -- see my patch below, which fixed the issue for me.
