Hi all, after I press the send button, the next info windows pops up with the message that the SMTP server gets connected, the e-mail gets send. than it hangs on the last message 'Copying message to Sent folder...', I have to press cancel and have to dicard or save the message. after this event, I can not see anything in the sent folder and the curser stays in the 'hour-clock' form till I click to another folder. After closing and opening Thunderbird again, the system performs a re-indexing of the folder. However, the e-mail gets send out and copied into the sent folder correctly This happens not always, but oftener and oftener. I observed that it happens after I some other mails or there is no conection to the SMTP server. my build; version 1.0 (20041206) regards Carsten Dohrmann it happens oftener and oftener that the

it's like bug 271259, isn't it?
(In reply to comment #3) > it's like bug 271259, isn't it? Not really, as the message get sent and copied into the sent folder correctly, but than the message window that says 'copying to sent folder....' do not disapear/terminates and the main 'message write' window do not terminate. I have to click the cancl button at the first message window and than close the 'write window' with option clicking 'don't save' to go back to normal main window where I can see all the folders and messages.
(In reply to comment #0) Hi, I've got exactly the same problem (Windows XPSP2 Thunderbird fr version 1.0 (20041206)) for 1 month now. First, it occurred from time to time, but now each copy to "Sent folder" fail. Additional info : My provider has a special imap setting, and I had to change manually the "server Imap folder" to "INBOX.". Outlook express seems to work flawlessly and set up automatically the "INBOX." thing.
My experience of this is: 1. The problem is intermitent. 2. It never appears if I compose in offline mode and "send later" and then "connect" and send. 3. Once it started happening, it alsways happen - and restarting thunderbird does not help. 4. I use different accounts from different providers, and I have not been able to see and difference between the account - when it happends it concerns all accounts. My tests are made on WINXP SP2 with thunderbird version 1.0 (20041206)
My experience: 1. After starting TB, I will be able to send maybe 1-5 emails without a problem before the problem occurs. 2. Once the problem occurs (as described by others here), it happens every time until I restart TB. Restarting TB fixes the problem, but... 3. After the problem occurs, One message will be missing from my Inbox, and replaced by an unread blank message dated 1/1/1970. Quitting TB, deleting the Inbox index file, and restarting TB restores the Inbox. Running on Win XP SP2, Thunderbird 1.0 (20041206) with a POP3 account.
Further to my tale of woe in comment #7: 4. THis still happens if I compose in Offline mode. In this case, when I click "Send Later" it hangs on "Copying message to Unsent Items folder". However, the message does in fact get copied. The Inbox corruption still occurs. 5. This still occurs with TB 1.0.2. Damn.
nothing has changed in 1.02. If you want to try a new build, try a trunk build.
I have a hunch this is connected to a filter bug. I started getting this problem when i had a filter copying every mail into a folder called "inbox archive" (to prevent need for constant profile backups). The problem disappeared once i turned off this filter (which caused other problems too like sometimes putting only a copy in the archive and leaving none in the normal inbox, causing less junk recognition, and/or keeping recogised junk in the inbox).
Isn't this related or identical to bug 271259 ? https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=271259
Is it like the bug 231493?
It is not like bug <a href="https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=231493">231493</a>. Read the bug descriptions; they're quite clear, and quite different. There are similarities with <a href="https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=271259">271259</a>. The corrupted inbox, for example. Either that or the bugs are different and I am getting bitten by both of them. Lucky me. I am using filters, including one that copies all incoming messages to a folder. Perhaps I will try turning it off to see what effect that has.
I seem to have fixed the problem by disabling my message filter. It was a filter that copied all incoming messages to an archive folder. Strange that it's an incoming message filter, yet seems to trigger this bug in outgoing messages. Also annoying.
This is specifically to Carsten Dohrmann, who opened this bug. It might also be of help to some of the other reporters here. (Ekhart, and Boying Lu, were talking about bugs that I think are completely unrelated.): Is this for IMAP mail? There have been some recent fixes around several different apparent hangs when copying messages to the Sent folder; see in particular bug 287658, bug 123063, bug 163951. The fixes for those are in 1.5b1 and branch builds as well as trunk builds.
To whoever is working on the fix. It happend with any POP server. However, since a couple of month I have not seen it happen again. Looks like it is solved (with 1.0.6), or a change of my system environment had a positive side effect on it. No idea if it is still valid for other users. cheers Carsten
