Reproducible: Always
Some other information would be useful, such as: - Which version of Thunderbird is showing this problem? (Help --> About Thunderbird) - What server settings do you have for the three different mail accounts (e.g. are they POP or IMAP, set to expunge inbox on exit, etc. etc.) - which of the three works, and which two don't
you'll have 2 excuse - my english's not THAT good ;-) 1.) it worked for all three accounts until yesterday. the sent messages are saved in the "local folders/sent" now - not in the account-folder 2.) version: version 1.0.7 (20050923) 3.) all of them are POP servers 4.) settings: checked --> secure server, check 4 new msgs at startup, check for new msgs very minute, automatically download new messages 5.) all accounts are using the same port (110) 6.) the working account is the main account. but as said before: even these mails are only stored at the local sent folder 7.) screenshot1: http://seitzi.motorradseiten.at/th1.gif 8.) screenshot2: http://seitzi.motorradseiten.at/th2.gif
Thanks for the additional information. So the problem just started yesterday -- until then, sent mail was being stored on the POP servers up? Very strange... This additional information makes the problem much clearer. Is it possible that the managers of the gmx.at mail server have changed the POP sever settings such taht you can no longer save sent mail there? I ask because the problem accounts seem to be both on that mail server....
yes, until yesterday everything worked fine! POP servers have not been changed. thunderbird just doesn't "remember" my settings. i check the "copy to sent folder" box and when i return to this menu, it's unchecked again. newest problem: it doesn't accept the password of my third account now. i'm using outlook at the moment - i can't explain this probs. do you think i should do a reinstall? what would be the best way to save my mails? thx -chr!s-
Did you by any chance recently install anti-virus software that might be scanning your incoming mail? See bug 221386.
I can't say when this might have happened but at least as of version 184.108.40.206 (20080213) this problem seems to be gone. I think it is safe to consider this matter closed (fixed). If no one comments in the next few days, I'll do that.
