Duplicate sendlater alert dialog if mail.default_sendlater_uri set to bogus folder


(MailNews Core :: Backend, defect, P3)



(Not tracked)



(Reporter: laurel, Assigned: sspitzer)


Using 12-08-08m12 commercial build mac OS 8.5.1 and Linux 6.0
(haven't yet tried with current windows build -- having problems with it)

Found while verifying bug #18383.

The alert which displays when using send later when default_sendlater_uri is
pointing to a nonexistent Unsent folder location is displaying twice.

1.  Use a POP account in a profile having no IMAP, no local mail folder.
2.  Change prefs.js "mail.default_sendlater_uri" pref value to
"mailbox://nobody@Local Mail/Unsent Messages"
3.  Launch 5.0 to messenger.
4.  Open the POP account. Compose a new message and Send Later.
5.  An alert displays reading: "Unable to save your message in order to send it
later. Please verify that your Mail preferences are correct and try again."
Click OK.

Result:  alert dialog displays again and must be OK'd again to dismiss.

Expected result:  alert dialog need only display once.

Target Milestone: M16
two alert dialog is not good, but nothing we can't live with for a while, seeing
as they get this in an error case.

movnig to m16.  accepting.

good catch, as always, laurel.

adding rhp to the cc list.
Mass moving M16 to M17 - look for nsbeta2 before anything else.
Target Milestone: M16 → M17
moving to future milestone. Does this bug still exist?
Target Milestone: M17 → Future
Laurel, I will repeat putterman's previous and 7 months old question: does this
bug still exist?
We'll look at it when we get a chance from testing the trunk builds and from
writing/updating our test specs.  This bug is already marked future regardless
if it exists or not, so we'll look at it when our schedule allows us to.
