STEPS TO REPRODUCE 1. Reply to a message. 2. Click Send. > A dialog appears (this is probably server-dependent and doesn't always occur even on my server, although it is quite frequent): The current command did not succeed. The mail server responded: Command unrecognised: UID SEARCH 3. Click OK. > Another dialog appears, note the capitalisation of "Sent folder": Your Send operation was successful, but copying the message to your Sent folder failed. Would you like to return to the compose window? The bug is: The buttons available are OK and Cancel. They should be "Return to compose window" and "Discard Message". At the moment it is not obvious that "Cancel" will cause dataloss.
There should probably also be a button for "Retry", because for me it usually works on the third or fourth attempt.
i'm marking this dupeme not because hixie filed a bug similar to this about a slightly different aspect (he filed many bugs about all possible aspects) but because i think there is an older bug about this (i might have filed it).
Oh right, the other thing... retry would never work for me w/ the account that i have that can reproduce this bug, the sent folder doesn't exist, so it always fails to save :)
Jglick, isn't there a bug filed to revise this incredibly misleading and confusing dialog?
Marking this as a dup of bug 28211. Both the bugs requset to let the user retry when failing to copy to the sent folder. Again jglick would make the call as to what the buttons should say. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 28211 ***
Reopening. This bug is about the buttons having the wrong labels, the other bug is about the need for a retry button.
The problems with the Cancel/OK response for this very dialogue is discussed in bug 142737. Unfortunately the discussion there doesn't seem to be moving forward to a resolution very fast. Resolving as a dupe of 142737. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 142737 ***
Okay, I can't keep track of which window is which. Its really (honest, this time) a dupe of bug 118684. Apologies for the spam.
