Description

18 years ago
Using 2000-01-19-08 commercial build on linux 6.0
Haven't yet gotten a chance to test on other platforms

When you use the menu item File|Load First Draft Message while there are indeed
drafts present in the drafts folder a crash occurs.  If there are no drafts
present in the drafts folder, using the menu item will just beep.

1.  Launch 5.0 and go to mail.
2.  Select a mail inbox, login with proper password.
3.  Compose a new message and Save As Draft.
4.  Close the compose window.
5.  File|Load First Draft Message.

Result:  a crash occurs.

I would expect Drafts would work the same as 4.x.  Save a message being composed
and it is saved to the Drafts folder.  Then you go to the Drafts folder and
select the message when you want to work with it again. No menu item.

Yes, this is just a temp fix until we get the real (4.x) functionality
implemented. Scott Putterman has that bug in his feature work.

win98, 2000012108m13 on linux, 2000012108m13 on mac the crash part of this bug 
is fixed.  jefft did you want to leave this open for the removal of the menu 
item? OR did you intend to resolve this as fixed?

Clearing crash from the keywords field, since the crash part of this was fixed 
and verified.  Also cleared status whiteboard "have fix".

Changing summary to reflect remaining issue: remove the Load First Draft menu 
item when the real menu item and open via double-click (bug #10796) 
are implemented.
Keywords: crash
Summary: Using menu item File|Load First Draft causes crash. → Remove menu item File|Load First Draft
