To gain disk space, from the File menu, first choose Empty Trash, and then choose Compact Folders, and then try again." My two partitions have 4 gigs and 2 gigs free respectively, so I doubt it's a diskspace problem. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Select a mail from your junk folder. 2. Try it onto a folder in your inbox. Actual Results: I get the above mentioned error message. Expected Results: The software should move the mail into the folder I selected.
But moving messages from another folder to a sub-folder of the inbox works? POP or IMAP?
It was using POP. I've since then stopped using Thunderbird, so I can't really help in producing more test results, sorry. However, after some further poking around, I suspect this might be because my mail file simply became too large (several gigabytes). Perhaps there is some code or library function that assumes some maximum file size, and the mail file is exceeding this size?
