Hitting cancel will make the dialog go away, but the progress bar continues to move in the bottom of the main Tbird window. Errors continue as I close Tbird (read the steps to reproduce), but when I run it again and check the newsgroup, the message appears, having been sent *successfully*. I assume this is some sort of bug in closing the NNTP connection, or in the SSL handling. Again, it's important to note that this simply happens "sometimes", under identical conditions as best I can reproduce them. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start newsgroup post 2. Send TBird says "Posting message ..." forever 3. Click Cancel TBird makes dialog go away, continues to "think" as indicated by the progress bar in the main window 4. Close message TBird says "Message has not been sent. Do you want to save the message in the Drafts folder?" 5. Click "Save" or "Don't Save" ... doesn't matter, just get rid of the message window TBird continues to "think" 6. Close TBird TBird gives error message: "There was an error copying the message to the Sent folder. Retry?" 7. Clicking OK continues to give the error, so click Cancel Message Composition window reappears with message: "The message was sent successfully, but could not be copied to your Sent folder. Would you like to return to the compose window?" 8. Click Cancel 9. Rerun TBird 10. Check newsgroup Message is there, posted successfully 11. Check Sent Items Message is not there Actual Results: The message is posted successfully, but only *after closing TBird* and after dodged several errors. However, the message is not properly saved to the Sent folder. Expected Results: Posted the message without an error, and saved to Sent folder. This bug sounds similar to bug 253523, but that mentions using INN2 which is something I'm not using. This is straight-up Thunderbird 1.0.6.
WFM version 3.0a1pre (2007082704) Please reopen if you see otherwise using a current version "posting message" appears in the status area of the compose window, not in the mail main window status area
