User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130 Build Identifier: Mozilla 1.3 The SMTP connection appears to send the mail, but an error appears indicating that the SMTP connection has failed. Attempts to re-send the message may or may not generate the same warnings. In fact, the SMTP connection has sent the message, as many times as you've tried, but the mail message is not saved into the remote SENT folder. All folders are IMAP. Eventually, after several retries, the SEND operations appears to work and the sent message is saved in my SENT folder. I then get many emails from colleages nagging me for sending them several copies of an email. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Compose a new, or reply to, an email message. 2. Type in your message, address the message, etc. 3. Hit "Send". 4. Wait for errors and follow the "retry" instructions, sending many emails and annoying colleages. Eventually it will work. Actual Results: Read "Details" section. Expected Results: Sent the email and saved a copy it in my SENT folder ... on the first attempt!!! Version 1.2.1 (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130) works well. The new version 1.3 that I downloaded on 2002-03-13 does not work.

Whoops. My comment #1 above was an accident I made when I marked another bug wrongfully as a duplicate of this one.
Created attachment 140750 [details] Sample of what a testcase SMTP session would look like This is easy to duplicate.. if, after the mail is sent, the ISP closes the session instead of waiting for Mozilla to close it, Mozilla throws a tantrum, but it has already said that the mail was sent. it does not close the mail composer window and it does not put it in the Sent folder. This is an example of an SMTP server session for which Mozilla would have this problem.
This has been seen by me on macOS-X and FreeBSD in addition to PC I see it on Mozilla 1.4 and 1.6. so should be OS= ALL
smtp.sbcglobal.net hangs up on me after the data section now. They just started doing it. I get this error in mozilla 1.4 and 1.6. SBC refuses to fix the smtp issue in sendmail. Does anyone know if this happens in NS4/6/7? 220 pimout4-ext.prodigy.net ESMTP Sendmail 8.12.10 out 1msg/8.12.10; Tue, 10 Feb 2004 00:06:44 -0500 HELO adsl-64-161-176-181.dsl.lsan03.pacbell.net. 250 pimout4-ext.prodigy.net Hello adsl-64-161-176-181.dsl.lsan03.pacbell.net [64 .161.176.181], pleased to meet you MAIL FROM:firstname.lastname@example.org 250 2.1.0 email@example.com...
