When setting a folder where mail should be stored using Options > Send a copy
to, a copy of the mail is stored in that folder not only when the message is
sent (once) but every time the message is saved/saved as draft.

A copy should only be placed when the mail is actually sent.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compose
2. Options > Send a copy to > Select folder
3. Hit Ctrl-S, Ctrl-S, Ctrl-S => three copies of the mail have been saved in the
specified folder

Actual Results:  
Multiple copies of the mail in the designated folder

Expected Results:  
One copy of the mail in the designated folder after sending the mail only

I do not see this.  I see a single copy stored in the designated folder (and 
updated each time if edits are made between saves), but multiple copies being 
stored in the DRAFTS folder.  If the "Save a copy to" setting has not been made, 
then multiple saves overwrite the copy in Drafts.

However, I agree with reporter, the copy should not be saved at all until the 
message is sent.  Maybe these are separate bugs.

Moz 1.7.5, Moz 1.8b-0120, TB 1.0; Win2K.


Also (separate problem) -- if the original composition window is closed, and 
then a draft is edited, the Save A Copy setting is not restored.

I can reproduce this bug on Firefox 1.5.0.3, windowsXP SP2.

I have been getting this problem since FF 1.5 (fairly sure).

Pasting is fine multiple times, but as soon as you try to copy twice, nothing gets pasted anymore.
sorry for the spam.  making bugzilla reflect reality as I'm not working on these bugs.  filter on FOOBARCHEESE to remove these in bulk.
