After sending mails, sent mails in sent-folder on an IMAP account get destroyed:
Mozilla saves the new sent mail into another mail, which already is in sent-folder.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Write an email with an IMAP-Account, make sure that there are mails in
sent-folder and sent mails are saved after sending
2. send your email
3. wait until your email has been saved in sent-folders
Actual Results:  
The sent mail does not appear in sent-folder. It actually is there, but the mail
is attached to another mail which was in this folder before.

Expected Results:  
Mozilla should have saved the sent mail as a independent mail in sent-folder

I was using als IMAP server.

are you saying that the sent mail folder on the imap server is corrupted? This
sounds like a server bug. There shouldn't be any way the imap client can corrupt
folders on the server.

Could you try generating an imap protocol log?

Ever confirmed: true

IMAP Logfile

I added the IMAP-Logfile.
I think its a problem of Mozilla as it works correctly with Outlook Express 6.

that log looks fine. Can you show us a log for retrieving the corrupt message(s)
from the sent mail folder?

when you say outlook express works fine, do you mean it can read the messages
correctly, or puts them in the sent mail folder without corrupting the sent mail
folder? Does outlook express read the messages correctly?

IMAP Logfile retrieving corrupt Message

Outlook Express saves the mail correctly, but if I open a corrupted mail with
Outlook Express it is shown incorrectly.

this still looks like a server problem - it's possible we're giving the server
the wrong message size, and confusing the server into corrupting the mailbox,
but I haven't heard of any other problems like this. Could you show a log of two
messages getting appended to the sent folder, and then the log of retrieving the
first one?

Note that the server seems to think that message is larger than 6K! - 235 FETCH
(UID 235 RFC822.SIZE 6484 BODY[] {6484}  when it's more like 450 bytes.

Bug seems to be fixed in 1.3a (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US;
