I have set up several identities, such as email@example.com. If I send mail using an identity the e-mail is copied into firstname.lastname@example.org->"Sent" instead of my selected folder. The correct folder is used if I don't change the identity. Once the "Sent" folder is created it cannot be deleted within Thunderbird. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Change Sent Items folder in account settings. 2.Add an identity. 3.Send mail using identity. Actual Results: Copy of sent item found in "Sent" folder. Expected Results: Copied message to "Sent Items" folder. Using Thunderbird 0.8+/0.9 20041027.
Copying to the Sent folder is controlled by the identity-specific fcc and fcc_folder preferences: mail.identity.idXXX.fcc mail.identity.idXXX.fcc_folder If you make a change to the default identity, these settings are not propogated to the other identities -- which is sensible if you've set up to use specific folders for specific identities, but otherwise is a pain. You can edit the settings manually in prefs.js. The duplicate bug requests a UI for all the identity-specific preferences. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 262300 ***
