Changing accounts

Say that I have an account called me@abz.net. I then find that abz.net are going out of business so I set up a new account called me@dhz.com.

Fine, I can now send and receive messages on my new account. However, FossaMail will attempt to send/receive on my old account that has many messages stored on my computer (POP account). Is there any way of preventing FossaMail from attempting to send/receive whilst still displaying the old Inbox and Sent Items?

You could turn off check for new messages in Account Settings for the first account. Would be pretty simple.

To clarify: you click the "View settings for this account" then go to server settings and uncheck the boxes that control checking for new mail. See attached image.

Ultimately you may want to move all your mail to some local (offline) mail folder and remove the account entirely, because manual checking (get all new mail) would still contact the old account's servers.
