Using mar06 builds, all platforms. Found while verifying bug #10796 (double-click event for drafts/templates) If the user has specified the storage folder for drafts/templates to a folder other than "Drafts" or "Templates", they cannot open any items stored there. This is true for IMAP or POP accounts pointing to a user folder on either the account/server folder hierarchy or the local folders hierarchy. 1. Change the copies&folders account settings to store drafts and templates to a user folder -- something other than "Drafts" or "Templates". To do this: a. Edit|Account Settings. Select the account, go to its Copies&Folders panel. b. Change the dropdown for "Keep message drafts in" to point to a folder which you've created such as "test", not a default drafts or templates folder. This can be either a folder within the server folder hierarchy or within "local folders" hierarchy. c. confirm OK to the account settings change and overall dialog. d. do the same for both drafts and templates storage. 2. Now go to mail window, create a new message and File|Save As|Draft. Check the specified draft storage folder and see the message appears in the thread pane and contents appear in message pane when selected. 3. Select the draft and double-click to open. Nothing happens. There is also no "open" menu item which would serve as a replacement for the double-click. 4. Try the same for Templates, same result. Result: User specified drafts/template folder is not noted as special folder by sort or other indication. Items within the specified drafts/templates folder have no special draft/template icon to indicate the messages are drafts or templates. User cannot open such a saved draft or template. Expected result: Should be able to open saved draft or template saved to folder other than "Drafts" or "Templates". Workaround: User would need to change account setting to point to a "Drafts" or "Templates" folder. Then copy message to the "Drafts" or "Templates" folder and could then open via double-click.

putting in an entry for this in beta1 release notes.
User can open items stored to a user folder other than "Drafts" or "Templates", but not until the session after the pref has been changed to point to this folder. New drafts or templates will be stored there if saved right after changing the pref, but to open these items the user must exit and return (then everything will work hunky-dory after that in subsequent sessions). Jeff and I talked about this last week and he seemed to think this might be due to the folder flags problem(s). I'm going to mark this one verified, since the user folders are indeed recognized at a later session. I'm going to open a bug specific to the lag time which may wind up being the folder flag thing.
