User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/38.0 Build ID: 20150508094354 Steps to reproduce: - install Thunderbird 38.0b5 - basic account setup - disable account prefs - server settings - advanced - show only subscribed folders - enable account prefs - Copies & Folders - Save sent messages in current folder* - select any user-created folder viewing it's messages, e.g. "MyFolder" - compose and send a new message while within MyFolder * translated from german to english Actual results: Sent message was saved in "Sent" folder Expected results: Sent messages should have been saved in MyFolder Possible references: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=301084 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1162935
The setting Save sent messages in current folder* does not exist. It says: Place replies in the folder of the message being replied to (or in German: Antworten im Ordner der ursprünglichen Nachricht speichern) It clearly says it only works for *replies*, not for new messages being composed "from the folder"...

Oops ... that's true. Sorry!
Well, you can of course request this as an enhancement, but I don't think that Thunderbird remembers which folder was selected when you start composing a message, so it can't save the message there (yet).
There's an AddOn for this (https://addons.mozilla.org/thunderbird/addon/copy-sent-to-current/). It adds a bar though which I don't need. Users pre-sorting their messages (e.g. by using filters) will love this addon, but I know lot's of people that only use Inbox and Sent ... so I won't create an RFE. It's a bit odd though, that there is "save replies to current" in TB but not newly composed messages.
Summary: FCC is saved in Sent despite of "save to current folder" being active (regression) → save FCC to current folder
