I install eM Client on my customers’ (home users) computers, as an excellent Outlook/Thunderbird alternative, with full Gmail (email, contacts, and calendars) syncing capability.
I have noticed that everyone sees the error window frequently, yet Gmail in eM Client appears to be working just fine. They ring me and complain, and some want to change email programs because of it.
An actual error message:
email@example.com: Connecting to
[IMAP] An attempt to connect to firstname.lastname@example.org failed.
This could be caused by temporary server unavailability or
incorrect settings. Do you want to check the settings?

I have seen your response to go into "Tools - Settings - General - General and uncheck ‘Show window when an error message occurs’. " in other places on this support forum, and will recommend this band-aid solution, but I want to know why eM Client keeps having errors, and if it can and will be fixed soon.
If this error really is just about not being able to contact the server briefly, it should be suppressed unless it keeps happening for more than, say, 10 minutes. One shouldn’t have to suppress ALL errors just to avoid this pesky notification.
I like your program and wish to see it succeed.
