(Im using an IMAP server) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Select a message in my draft folder with several attachments (On IMAP server, dunno about POP3) 2. Right-click on the attachments (displayed below the message) or select File->Attachments->Save All. 3. Select a directory to download to Actual Results: Thunderbird displays "Downloading Message" in status bar it seems for each attachment.
