User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4

I'm using Thunderbird version 1.0.2 (20050317).

I set up the filters in all my email accounts to move junk mail to the Junk
folder located under Local Folders.

As we run our own mail server I check the headers of the junk mails. So I keep
the junk mails for some time in the Junk folder.

When Thunderbird has been running for a while (several hours) and I want to
delete the Junk mails I use the option "Tools I Delete Mail marked as Junk in
Folder". Nothing happens. Even when I open the mails and click the delete button
nothing happens.

I have to exit Thunderbird and restart it. Once restarted I can use the option
via the Tools menu or delete all mails by marking them and then hitting the
delete button on my keyboard.

Reproducible: Always

Expected Results:

Are you sure that you have the Junk mail folder in Local Folders selected when
you do this?

Yes, I definately have the folder selected. Even if I just select one or more
mails in the folder "manually" I can't delete them.

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.
