Linux Redhat 6.0 (1999-12-22-08 M13)
Win_nt 4.0 (1999-12-22-08 M13)
Mac (1999-12-22-08 M13)
1. Launch Messager
2. Select Inbox from my POP account
3. Create a subfolder called Sub1 under Inbox using File|New|Folder
4. Select a message from the Inbox, select Massage|Copy Message to copy this
message to the Inbox's subfolder called sub1.
5. Click on sub1 to open this folder

Actual result:  No response, screen does not reflash, it still shows the Inbox
message threads in the thread pane.

Expect result: It should display the Inbox's subfolder message threads.

This occurs on all 3 platforms in POP
Message was successfully copied to the Inbox subfolder. But I have to
exit/relaunch Messager in order to see the message copied in the Inbox's
subfolder. If you need a separate bug, please let me know.

Jeff, could you investigate? I don't know if there's really data loss involved,
but since it looks like data loss to the user, I think it's a beta1 stopper.
Marking M14
Keywords: beta1
Hmm... I just tested on NT and linux using feb01 m14 builds and did not see this
problem.   Maybe fenella could retest to confirm.
Putting on on PDT+ radar for beta1.

I re-tested this bug using the same scenarios, the problem no longer exists.
However, today's Mac build is broken. I have to wait for the next build to check
this bug.

Unable to re-test Mac due to Bug 26485.
Mac still having problem creating new folder. Windows and Linux are working 
I am marking this as worksforme.
