Fresh upgrade from Moz 1.1 to Mozilla 1.3 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win 9x 4.90;
en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312


1. Open and running email in three pane window with message in preview. 
2. Delete message. Works as expected.
3. Next message highlighted and in preview. 
4. Delete message. Nothing appears to happen. 
5. Deleted message remains in preview no matter which message highlighted. 
6. Deleted message remains visible in inbox.
7. Messages can be opened to include deleted message.
8. Move another message to a folder results in an unread message condition.
Message might be visible (and responds to delete) or may not be visible. If
visible, message has old date (12/31/69 6:00 pm), no subject. However, deleted
message now gone from inbox and in trash as desired. 
9. Message that was subject of move is now gone. Not clear if I did something to
cause loss. 
8. Stop/Start Mozilla also clears deleted message.

This bug seems to be best fit to my situation, however bugs 188152 and 196534
may also be related.   

Not sure I can live with this and may try to back off. Still, this is one
awesome chunk of software folks!! Keep up the good work!!

Finally figured out what you guys were talking about with the case issue of the
inbox files. I did migrate from Netscape 4.7. Both of my inbox files were all
lower case. Renamed both to “Inbox”. Can no longer reproduce problem.
