If the composition window is opened from a mailto: link or from using Apple's
Address Book, then File->Save As->Draft will silently fail, with nothing
actually performed. Also, if the compose window is closed before the mail is
sent, there is no pop-up window reminding the user to save as draft.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. With Thunderbird set as mail handler, type 'mailto:user@email' into location bar
2. Alternatively, use Address Book to select an address to write an email to
3. Close the compose window

Actual Results:  
Mail discarded without prompting the user to save; manually saving as draft does
not work either

Correction - can't duplicate the 'Save as Draft' failure, but the user is still
not prompted to save as draft when the compose window is closed manually without
sending the email.

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.
