preferences for the server set to save templates and drafts to local draft and template folders

1. click message in newsgroup
2. click save as > template

expected results:
message is in the local template folder

actual results:
- newsgroup message not in template folder
- no error message

First click of first message in the newsgroup, but before attempting "save as", javascript console gets:
Warning: Unknown namespace prefix 'html'.  Ruleset ignored due to bad selector.

Sorry, I've just discovered I had my program set up wrong.

I'm seeing this not only with News, but also with messages in a Local Folder or an RSS folder, in TB and in Seamonkey 1.5-0518.

Joe Greenman, could you elaborate on that?  I'm unable to save templates at all using 2a1/3a1 builds (see bug 320102) but messages in a POP or IMAP account can be saved as a template with TB

I thought I had my program set to save mails, templates, etc. in my server account, but I discovered I actually had them set to be saved in my local folders. All my "tests",  which I couldn't find in my account folders, had been -correctly according to my settings - saved locally.

I hope that helps.

This bug exists for me in Thunderbird version 3.0a1pre (2007090203) Linux

Created a new profile, a new account (, subscribed to a newsgroup, did what the bug says; restarted; created “Templates” under “Local Folders”, tried a few times more, restarted, again.

so bug 320102 patch didn't fix this :(

fails now with no message in error console version 3.0a2pre (2008051203)

should save as template be disabled?
Actually, seems WFM on linux/trunk. Did you look in the correct account's Templates folder?
Wayne, did you recheck?

not found in any template folder in any account
changing location in copies and folders has no effect, still fails
