1999073011M9/Necko: Win32/NT4 Overview Description: After selecting to Send a message later it goes to the Unsent folder but it never sends the message even after selecting File/Send Unsent Messages. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Launch Mail 2. Select New Message button so the compose window appears. 3. Create a message by addressing it, typing in the subject and the message body. 4. Select File/Send Later. The compose window may not close by itself, just select the X box. 5. Go to the Unsent Message folder to verify the messages is there. 6. Select File/Send Unsent Messages. Actual Results: The message remains in the Unsent Messages folder and never gets sent. Expected Results: It should have disappeared from the Unsent Messages folder and then viewed in the recipients mail application. Additional Builds and Platforms Tested On: - Using a single POP, non-Necko build works. Additional Information: - Tried closing the application, restarting and sending again but it still remains in the Unsent Messages folder. Will try Linux and Mac.
re-assigning to rhp who handles the unsent folder stuff.

I just fixed this. Somehow the pref to turn off deletion got changed to something that would have always been true. So if you want to turn off deletion of "Sent Unsent Messages" from your Drafts folder, set the pref: "mail.really_delete_draft" to false. It defaults to true. - rhp
The problem is that the messages remain in the Unsent Messages folder and not the Draft folder. Would your statement still apply?
Build 1999080408M9: Win32/NT4 Reopening because it doesn't appear fixed. I created a new message, selected File/Send Later which saved the message to the "Unsent Messages" folder. Then selected File/Send Unsent Messages but nothing happens. Linux build 8/02am: Messages remain in Unsent Messages folder. Couldn't try 8/04 build because the Sidebar is blank. Mac 8.5.1 8/04 build. Messages remain in Unsent Messages folder. Not able to create new messages due to Compose problems.

I ended up fixing this today. Yes, there was a problem with finding the correct folder for appropriate copy/delete operations. Let me know if I'm off, but I think I got it this time :-) - rhp
Ninoschka - I'm setting you as QA contact on this one since you've been working on this :-)
