I created 2 IMAP accounts in Mozilla, one with a plain IMAP connection (port
143) and the other with a SSL IMAP connection (port 993). Then I moved all
messages from two folders of the SSL IMAP account to the plain IMAP account.
A lots of messages on the plain IMAP account seems to be modified. The messages
only were sent to one email address so the CC: header should not contain any
addresses but it contains a list of addresses that were used in another email.
I also looked at the same emails from a webmail program and the result is the
same so it is obviously not a display problem.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. 2 IMAP accounts (one plain, one SSL)
2. be sure to have messages with only one email address in To: and no CC: field
   and other emails with To: and CC: filled with addresses
3. move all messages from one folder of the SSL account to the plain account

Expected Results:  
some emails without CC: should contain CC: headers

I think if one message contains To: and CC: and the next message contains only
To:  the CC: field is written with the contents of the previous message. Without
having any look into the source I think it might be that a buffer is not
cleared. (That is just a quick shoot, there is no need to trust it. ;-))
