Hello!

It happens some times that I bring my laptop to a new location and I try to access my email accounts via a new IP/location.

This results in being flooded by prompts to enter again my passwords for my email accounts, because Google, Yahoo etc blocked access because it thinks I have been compromised.

How can I stop these popup floods in TB and just tell it to stop trying to logging to these accounts for the time being until I fix it via web browser?

If I click CANCEL to stop these popups it keeps poping them again! And there is no way to put them in the background and work with TB!!! Is any TB developer listening??
thanks!

Have you tried enabling the Menu Bar and using File > Offline > Work Offline?

EDIT: Also available from the Menu Button.

EDIT#2: Or just click the icon in the lower left corner of the Status Bar.

It might be best to do that before you head out to the new location, then enable working online when you get back home.
