User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050302 Firefox/1.0.1 Fedora/1.0.1-1.3.2
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050302 Firefox/1.0.1 Fedora/1.0.1-1.3.2

On thunderbird-1.0-2.i386.rpm (20041216) of you have set up multiple IMAP
accounts, and are reading mail on one of them, and the Sent folder for this
account is located on another account for which you have not yet entered your
password, the copy to Sent fails without Thunderbird asking for the 2nd account
password.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up two IMAP accounts on your Thunderbird
2. Set the "Sent" folder of account #1 to be on account #2
3. Without logging in on account #2, send email using account #1
Actual Results:  
Thunderbird gives you a popup saying it is unable to save the copy to the Sent
folder, and if you select Retry it will fail without producing an error message.

Expected Results:  
Some earlier versions (at least in the Mozilla branch) used to ask for the
password for account #2 at this point, which of course makes sense.
This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

currently use.
