I think our way is better, since you can see at a glance which folders
are synced and which ones are not.  With Mozilla you have to go check
each folder one by one...

The components.

Hmm maybe we need to rework the dialog a bit.  Right now the shell just
tells the user which open connections there are and if they can be
closed.  I guess we can change it so the meaning is "there are open
unsynced connections" and change the wording in the dialog slightly...

Then the mailer can tell the shell the connection is OK to close once
it's done syncing it up.
