Description: it seems to take the lafite message sender an inordinately long time to respond to the abort button -- as if it didn''t check the abort button until it had sent the entire message and the mail server was waiting for final confirmation.  it can be quite frustrating to wait 30 or 40 seconds just to get lafite''s attention back.'

Even as I type this message, another one on the screen is working on aborting.  Why does this take so long?'

Indeed, if you click abort while Lafite is in the process of sending the body of the message, it waits until it finishes sending the body before coming back.  This is the most straightforward and least brutal way to abort, but does sometimes mean it takes a while.  I''ll look into doing it some other way, but I''m a little less confident of getting it "right" if I have to have the button click directly intervene in the message sending.'
