This looks like a dupe of bug 136148. That's exactly what happens here on Trunk.
True. If messages are not kept in the "sent" folder, it seems to be a quite similar scenario. But in general, the news reader is the very weakest part of TB. Are there any plans to improve the UI? I'd have lots of proposals.
If your messages are _lost_ (not moved to Sent), this is not a duplicate of that bug.
They are _lost_, as the title of this bug says. But my understanding of #136148 was that "keep messages" was activated (which is not the case for me). So it really sounds like a similarity. I haven't tested what happens if I activate it.
Confirmed, marking duplicate.
