15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 4.0; StumbleUpon.com 1.730)
Build Identifier: Mozilla Thunderbird 0.2 (20030901)

With Netscape I was able to place a copy of sent mail in my inbox so I could 
use the Threading feature to see an entire conversation (okay, this is probably 
unusual).  If I do this with Thunderbird, it changes the columns on the main 
window to show recepients instead of senders.

Why not allow the sender column as an option for the sent messages folder?  
This can be handy for any user created folder containing both sent and received 
mail.  Also should simplify the code by removing this special case.

Otherwise, bind the "recepient" column to the Sent Messages folder alone.  (I 
thnk this is what Netscape did, not sure about Mozilla).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.In the Tools : Account Settings: Copies and Folders panel
2.Set Place a Copy in Other option to INBOX
3.Accept and display main window.
4. Change to folder other than INBOX and change back
5. Look at the headers

Actual Results:  
The INBOX headers will show recepient, not sender.

Expected Results:  
Allow user to select Sender as a column.

I don't see this with current builds.

This feature has been implemented for quite a while now.
