I just replaced the "Server Name" setting, got a warning message and then everything seemed to work as it should. Until I tried to send a mail. When Thunderbird comes to the phase where it copies the sent mail to the Sent folder on the mail server it just hangs. I can press "Cancel" and close the mail edit window (confirming that the mail was not sent properly). This happended *every* time. Today it struck me that it might be interesting to verify that the account settings in Thunderbirds prefs.js file were correct. They were not. Just the mail server name had been changed, but the paths to the Sent, Draft and Template folders still had the old mail server name in them! Once I replaced the old mail server name by hand in the prefs.js file (for all relevant configuration options) to the new mail server name everything worked as a charm again. :) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create an IMAP mail account on mail server 2. Rename the mail server (e.g. from foo.bar.com to gazonk.bar.com) 3. Update account settings to reflect the name change Actual Results: Thunderbird fails to copy sent mail to Sent folder on mail server. Expected Results: All relevant configuration settings should have been updated automatically to reflect the change of mail server name.
