Setting "Place a copy in:" to INBOX in "Mail & Newsgroup Accout Settings -
Copies and Folders" does not save a copy to the INBOX.  The dialog box that
says: "Copying message to INBOX folder..." stays on the screen for an as long as
I let it.  Setting this to other folders works fine.  This is happening with my
work account.  It looks like they are using qmail as the mail server.  A
different IMAP account that I have seems to work fine with this setting.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set "Place a copy in:" to INBOX in "Mail & Newsgroup Accout Settings - Copies
and Folders"
2. Compose and send an email from that account

Actual Results:  
Application will send the email but the dialog box and compose window do not
close until the cancel button is hit on the "Copying message to INBOX folder..."
dialog box.

Expected Results:  
This dialog box should have displayed and then dispeared automatically after the
message had been saved to the INBOX.

This worked in earlier version of Mozilla (pre 1.7).

It worked fine on 1.6 but 1.7 is having problems.

The entry in prefs.js is exactly the same as it was in 1.6:


which looks good.

Also the way it is presented in The account manager is wrong after saving. It
does not say "Inbox on USW" But "USW"

BTW I am Using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

The Mailserver is COURIER.
