"Sent" instead of "Drafts" in error message

I was just composing a message when Internet connection was lost. An
error message complained that the message could not be copied to the
Sent folder. After some trying, I understood that obviously the Drafts
folder was meant.

I'm using latest-comm-1.9.1 ... Is there a bug on this yet? I think this
should be fixed for release. We're already string-frozen for the next
beta, right? :-|

Not a bug, that is the way the program is suppossed to work


When you send a message the message will be put into the Sent folder 
once the ack is returned from the server confirming it was sent.

Since you lost your connection, obviously the program did not get the 
acknowledgement of sending, so the error pops up to inform you that the 
message was not put into the Sent folder.


you could save it to put it in the Drafts folder.


??The latest Thunderbird is 2.0.0.12     not 1.9.1

I did not try to send it. First, TB probably (tried to) auto-saved it to
"Drafts". Then, I explicitly clicked "Save".

Yes, and TB complains it could not be saved to the 'sent' folder, where
I did not try to save it.

1.9.1 is the current branch for Mozilla (libxul?). I mean I am using the
latest nightly of what will become Thunderbird 3.0.

Ah, thanks. I included "draft" or "drafts" in all my searches.

      I don't think he was questioning the way TB works so much as he
was the content of the error message generated.  The problem is that
when a failure occurs while attempting to save a message to a folder
other than "Sent" TB doesn't correctly identify the folder involved.
Instead it "blindly" refers to the "Sent" folder, which can cause
confusion for the user.

      The latest release version of TB is 2.0.0.21, not 2.0.0.12.  Were
you perhaps typing with your fingers crossed? :-D

      The 1.9.1 refers to the Gecko version underlying the TB 3.x
evaluation version he's using.

      As in Jens' situation, that bug refers to mis-identifying an
attempted save to the "Drafts" folder, but there's more to it than
just that folder.

      I don't use the "Sent" folder.  Instead I use separate "Mailed"
and "Posted" folders to collect copies of my outgoing e-mail messages
and newsgroup posts respectively.  Recently, for the first time in
about 2 1/2 years of using TB, I had a save failure to one of these
folders, in this case "Posted".  The TB error message, however,
referred to the "Sent" folder.  I suspect that TB is hard-coded to
refer to the "Sent" folder in that error message, rather than using a
replaceable "token" which could correctly identify the actual folder
involved when a save attempt fails.
