Description

2 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/49.0.2623.110 Safari/537.36 OPR/36.0.2130.65 (Edition Campaign 67)

Steps to reproduce:

Message filter:

Mark message read
Move message from Inbox to another folder
Create copy of the same message to local folder





Actual results:

Phantom message sometimes appears in the local folder
Listed in UI, but no subject, no content

Running filter again on folder where message was moved creates a working copy to local folder


Expected results:

Message should have been copied to local folder with its contents.

Could be the same bug, still *not* fixed:

Currently, there is no _reliable_ way of getting messages out of thunderbird and stored locally whenever a mail comes in because of this bug.
