After sendind a new mail it is normally saved in 'sent' folder.
Sometimes this fail.

From some recent experiences it appears to me that it fail only after Thunderbird propose (and I accept) to compact folders.

I tried to reproduce with manual compact and saving never failed.
I feel like sometime autocompact was done and saving work.

but it's clear to me that
every time saving fail was after a auto compact operation.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.wait for compact folder dialog, say yes.
2.reply or new mail,  (it's gone)
3.send it
Actual Results:  
[lucky] everything OK, the mail is in 'sent'

[unlucky] mail will not save in 'sent' (nor in 'draft' by the way)

Expected Results:  
The lucky way

- The lucky way often win.
- The 'save as' menu can be used as a workaround.
I rate it minor bug.

Can this be a replica of Bug 390136?

I don't know.
Symptoms seems egals: can't save in 'sent' folder.
But in bug 390136, Marcel don't mention a link with the autocompact feature,
where I seem to insist on.

I can't affirm this bug (342505) is gone, but it's old, it was rare, and I can't remember when I got it the last time.
I wonder if it's not a lack of time to use it as a indice for 390136 when 342505 is probably simply obsolete.
