Copying sent mail into "Sent Mail" folder not interrupted when "Cancel" is hit
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040113 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040113 Using IMAP, windows client. Sending a large mail, I wish this mail (only) not to be copied to the Sent Items folder. After the mail is being sent successfully, the message "Copying to Sent Items folder" is displayed with a "Cancel" button. I hit the button, the message window closes down, but the copying moves on (very large mail, over IMAP, takes a few minutes). Then, I get the "copy failed" message window, *however* the mail was fully copied to the Sent Items folder (i.e. operation was not interrupted by pressing "Cancel"). I believe this is new to 1.6 (at least it used to work in a past ver - not sure I tested it at 1.5). Corollary: need an option to specify, for a particular mail, that I don't want it copied to the Sent Items folder. Probably deserves a new bug. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Send a large mail using IMAP. 2. When message window "Copying to Sent Items folder" shows, press "Cancel". 3. Actual Results: Message window closed, but copying continued for a long time (10 minutes). Expected Results: Interrupt the copying (cleanly) and ask whether to retry it.
this is fixed on the 1.7 trunk, but not in 1.6. I believe this is a dup of 206409. Can you try a 1.7 trunk build? I don't believe this ever worked in Mozilla - it may have looked like it worked, but cancel didn't really do anything except get rid of the progress dialog.
Thanks - you sure you got the number right? I fail to see how Bug 206409 is relevant here - what am I missing? Can't test 1.7 right now unfortunately.
d'oh, bug 206408 - marking as dup. But if you can try 1.7 at some point, please let me know. 1.7 also will give you percent progress during the fcc, if you need any more incentive :-) *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 206408 ***
