Error message after a very long lifetime (some days) with an imap gmail access. I cannot change the folder, I got a blank screen if I open the selected email. I do not have any idea of the problem but I just wanted to report the error. Quit and restart allow me to see the account emails again.
I'm having the same problem. Server unexpectedly closes the connection and any folder operations result in "broken pipe" message.
Here is an error log:

I've encountered this error as well. It tends to happen on a shorter timespan than days though, several hours of inactivity perhaps. I'm connected to both Gmail and Fastmail.
This error also happens after recovering after suspension (
sudo suspend, I guess "hibernation" is also a right word).
This error happens to me constantly - every 10 minutes or so; my email server is in Romania, and I don't think that aerc deals with latency (130ms+) very gracefully currently.
I tried to fix this issue as I run into this issue every 5 minutes with my school email. I have written 2 patches:
https://lists.sr.ht/~sircmpwn/aerc/patches/9455 (please note Drew's and Reto's comments on this patch)
https://lists.sr.ht/~sircmpwn/aerc/patches/9460 (A work in progress)
I will try to implement everything requested by Drew in 9455 into 9460 some other day...
Having this issue as well every 5-10 minutes approximately. I do not have the skills to write patches right now, but I hope some day I will :)
Also getting this issue after suspending. Lmk if there is trace that would be useful or smt
please stop withe the #metoo comments... they aren't useful.
The bug is known (and still open).
The next step is to write a fix, so unless one needs clarification on how to go about this which is of course valid, no more comments should be added.
~labrat a bit of a meta but if the overall goal of sh is to build a community around open source software, maybe don't shut off first commenters in such a drab way? There are many ways to say exactly what you are saying while being a bit more welcoming.
To expand this discussion, yes I would like more clarification on how to go about this. I have read the comments and patches submitted by ~anjan, and am curious especially about how to "Update the UI to explain that we're offline". What would be a good starting file to understand how the UI is composed? Cheers
you can start in https://git.sr.ht/~sircmpwn/aerc/tree/master/widgets/aerc.go and then follow the other files in the widgets dir to get an idea of how the ui works
