M 13 win 32 I have been testing mail functions. I have already reported other bugs, but must add this one. I wanted to test the "delayed send" option. I composed a message, then from the file menu, chose "send later." However, the queued mail didn't end up in my account's unsent message folder. Instead, it ended up in the local folders unsent message folder. Is that an error? Why the distinction between "my account" folders and the "local folders" folders? Also - I went to the File - Offline - work offline option, but got no indication of being offline. I then composed a message as a test, and hit "send". The message was sent right away, instead of being queued up (it should be queued, if I am offline). Congratulations on wonderful progress on this build, by the way. I admire the persistence and skill of all of you.
Glad you're liking the progress. With respect to the Go Offline menu comand, we don't have any code behind that right now. Although Send Later works. We'll disable the unimplemented menu commands soon. I think the Unsent Messages behavior you're seeing is "as designed." The thinking is that if you're an IMAP user, you can't push the queued message into an IMAP folder, since you probably don't have network access to the server (otherwise, why send later). I guess we *could* try to do this differently for POP users, but I'm not sure about the value there. Alec or Jennifer?
Yeah, this is working as designed. Like Phil explains, the idea is that IMAP folders are on the server and since you are "Sending Later", you are probably not connected to the server. So, mail waiting to be sent is stored on your local machine, hence in the "Local Folders" area.
marking verified as invalid.
I would like to revisit this issue for POP3 mail users. Since the automatic send of "unsent messages" no longer works, having the unsent messages in the LOCAL FOLDER (which I have not found anyone that knows why it exists and cannot be deleted once you have some other mail account) the unsent messages tend to get "lost" in the local folder. I request that EITHER the unsent messages get sent automatically OR the unsent message folder be placed in the proper account. BOTH these fixes seem desirable to me. Thanks
