When forwarding mail from a newsgroup posting (e.g. rec.org.sca), a send mail
error window is displayed after pushing send. The error message is:
"The message was sent successfully, but could not be copied to your sent folder.
Would you like to return to the compose window?"  
This occurs while using a pop3 mail server for incoming mail, an smtp server for
outgoing mail, and while looking at accounts on  an nntp news account.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Click "Forward" to open the composition window while reading a news posting
2.Enter email address (I have been mailing to myself to test)
3.Send Mail

Actual Results:  
A pop up Send Mail error window appeared with the error message above.
The actual mail message is indeed sent correctly as I have been receiving the
test messages with no problem.

Expected Results:  
Sent the mail, and copied the message into the "sent" folder.

This does not happen if I then forward the same message from the inbox (after I
have sent it to myself! :) ), only from the newsgroup posting itself.

Stacey Hobbs, is this bug still an issue for you?  As with comment 1, the 
program works for me -- the behavior you describe is not occurring -- with 
Mozilla 1.3.
