From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.8) Gecko/20020204 BuildID: 2002020415 Whenever I try to click the send button in the mail compose window I get two dialog boxes. One is a progress bar, and one says "Sending of message failed". This happens every time I try and send a mail. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Compose a message. 2. Click the send button. This worked in 0.9.7
can you try generating an SMTP log for us? http://www.mozilla.org/quality/mailnews/mail-troubleshoot.html#imap any errors printed out in the JS console? (Tasks / Tools / JS Console)
Shortly after I posted the bug mozilla ran away on me allocating memory. I don't know if it was related or not. I will try debugging later when I can risk freezing the system, but right now I can't.

OK I don't know what happend but now 0.9.7 doesn't work any more. I installed 0.9.7 and 0.9.8 in seperate directories owned by root. Now when I run 0.9.7 from its directory as me (not root) it is having the same problem. I'm going to remove my .mozilla and try again.
since your problem is related to sending I need ya to generate a log for SMTP instead of IMAP. So set your environment variable for SMTP. Thanks!
OK I moved my .mozilla and restarted 0.9.8. It was a disaster. Not only didn't the bug go away, but there we servral more. When I first started up it converted my profile from my ancient netscape profile. My mail servers ended up with two INBOX's each and for some reason in all the dialog boxes there was no text on the buttons. I just copied and pasted from the web page last time, I'll reset debugging for SMTP.
I restarted sendmail on my smtp server and everything is working now. It's funny how it didn't work for 0.9.8, then did work for 0.9.7, but then stopped working for both. I haven't seen the mozilla running away with memory problem either. So I guess this should makred as INVALID. Someone should look into the problem I had converting my netscape profile though. Is there already a bug for that?
jks: already a bug for that: search bugzilla for '2 inbox' and you should find it. verified invalid.
