Build: 2001100803 and NS6.1 (every recent build I tried) I cannot move more than one message at once between two folders in "Local Folders" hierarchy. Moving a single message at the time works fine. It looks like the problem is happening because I moved my Local Folders to another drive (outside of the profile) and set the appropriate directory in the "Local Folders" account settings.

commercial branch build: 0.9.4-2001-10-09-05 win98. I am able to move multiple messages between two local folders. I did change my local folders directory to a different drive and it works for me. Reporter, Can you delete the .msf file of the folder that you are trying to move the message to and see if multiple move works again. Also restart the application and let it build the summary file and see if it fixes the problem.
I think the user is saying he tried to move local messages across two hierarchies, i.e., between his pop3 account local folders, and a local folders account. We might be treating this as a cross-server move, when we shouldn't.
I was not allowed to drag drop single or multiple messages across local folder hierarchies (which is itself a bug). The drag drop cursor wouldn't let me.
but using the move/copy menu item worked fine for multiple messages.
I have created two new mail folders and 2 new messages inside one of them. If I point "local folders" to c:\mozilla\profiles\... and copy the 2 folders (with explorer) there, I can easily move the 2 messages between them. If I point "local folders" to e:\work\mailLocal and move (with explorer, outside of mozilla), I can't move the 2 messages at once. Either with drag-drop or "Move To" context menu option. There is no problem with drag-drop cursor. I tried running mozilla -console, but there are no error messages. I have also moved my pop3 server folders to e:\work\mail and I can move messages in those folders just fine. I can also move multiple messages pop3->local. I can't move multiple msgs inside "local folders" or local->pop3 folders.
I have also tried pointing "local folders" to the same drive (c:\work\mail) and it works fine. But in e:\work\mail it doesn't (I tried a brand new empty directory and created 2 new folders there).
reporter, Are you seeing this problem on recent builds?
I am seeing this problem on Linux - I am unable to drag multiple messages from Drafts or Sent to any of my IMAP folders (which are remote.) Single messages work fine. The symptoms are that the spinner in the status bar spins indefinitely but nothing happens. Moreover, after the failure, single drag-drop stops working until I restart Mozilla. This is really quite serious. This may be a local symptom of a more severe bug, where _everything_ stops working after a while. Gerv

gervase, are your drafts or sent folder local, or on a different imap server? I was able to copy 12 local messages into an imap folder, no problem.
My drafts and sent folder are local. I filed a more detailed bug, with an IMAP log, over in bug 129928. Gerv
I observed that the "move to folder" function seizes to work after a number of move operations. The limiting number was 3 or 5 or so. Since RC2 (maybe earlier) the problem didn't re-appear, until today when I moved lots of messages, so the problem is still there but the limit is higher now. The effect is not permanent insofar as it is gone when you restart mozilla. The effect is the same for drag&drop and for the "Move To" item from the mail header context menu. Using build 2002052008 on WinNT, with 8 POP3 accounts.
Hans, are you strictly moving mail between local accounts? (Gerv, I don't want to confuse any IMAP issues with any strictly local mail issues). Marko, are you seeing this with any recent builds? I tried setting up my local folders account on a different logical drive and didn't have any problems, and I can't think why it would matter.
The last time I saw this I was moving messages from one of my inboxes to a sub-sub-subfolder of "Local Folders". All my local mail folders are in the same directory tree. As I mentioned earlies, I have only POP3 accounts, so the move was done from a local folder to a local folder.
It now seems to work fine for me with 1.0rc3. Resolve as fixed/worksforme?
Marking this bug as worksforme since the initial reporter does not have problem with the recent builds. Refer to 129928 for problem while moving multiple messages from imap account. If you see problems with moving multiple messages in recent builds please reopen the bug.
