User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7 Build Identifier: Mozilla Thunderbird 0.3 (20031013) I leave Thunderbird on even when I'm not at my computer. One day I came back to it and found that lots (hundreds) of emails had been duplicated. This duplication occurred in both Inbox and its subfolders (I don't have anything in Local Folders, so nothing happened there). In some cases, the duplicates were generated in the same folder where the original email was. In other cases, emails that had been moved from the Inbox to subfolders got duplicated and placed in the Inbox. Someone else posted a similar problem occurring with a Mozilla Mail (http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=216427). I wasn't sure though if he was using Thunderbird or plain Mozilla, which is why I'm submitting this report. Also, he described it as re-importing, and I can't confirm or deny that re-importation is what happened in my case, though the two incidences sound very similar nonetheless. I don't think it was reimportation, though, because I believe that when I originally imported my mail from Outlook Express, they got sent to the Local Folder, not to my account's folder. Reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: 1. I don't know, since I wasn't there to see it happen. 2. 3.
Figured out that this problem was probably caused by what's described [url=http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=171110#c9]here (Bug 171110#c9)[/url]. I'm not sure though if mine should be marked a duplicate or not, since the link I've provided is to just one comment in a bug, not a whole bug.
