If I hit Ctrl-S to save a message, while I'm writing it, then it's saved to the
Drafts Folder. However, after sending it, that copy from  Drafts is not removed.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
First, I'll go over the normal steps for Drafts, and then this special case (to
try to avoid confusion between the two).

Normal drafts usage:
1. Start writing a message
2. Hit Ctrl-S to save the message
3. Close the message-compose window
4. Double click on the message from the Drafts folder
5. Hit send
6. Message is placed in Sent folder and removed from Drafts

Special case for Drafts:
1. Start writing a message
2. Hit Ctrl-S to save it (but don't close the message-compose window)
3. Message compose window remains open and message is also saved in Drafts (so
far, so good)
3. Send the message

Actual Results:  Message is sent, copied to Sent, but a copy is left behind in

Expected Results:  Message is sent, copied to Sent, but removed from Drafts.

The same problem appears under Linux with
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040413 Debian/1.6-5
therefore I think the OS should be set to All.

Hi All,

   Same thing is happening to me as well.  I am also running w2k-sp4.
This started as of 0.8 (20040913).  Previous versions were clean.
