Error if send while compacting
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-GB; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008061004 Firefox/3.0 Build Identifier: version 3.0a2pre (2008070703) I use my inbox as my sent folder. If the inbox is being compacted when a message is sent, then there is an error "There was an error copying to your Send folder" Unfortunately whatever option is chosen it seems to get stuck in a loop - with occasionally another error asking about whether not to save it. (Sorry I can't copy exact error text). Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set Sent folder to Inbox 2. Delete a lot of messages in the Inbox 3. Compose a message 4. Wait till Inbox gets compressed (window goes blank during the process) 5. Click Send 6. Keep clicking any dialogue options Expected Results: I would expect it to save the messsage as soon as the compaction completes. OR at worst allow you to continue without saving. This might sound obscure, but I find it happens often. The typical scenario is reading an inbox with a lot new mail, deleting most, and then replying to a message. Its quite severe, because at times I've had to Force-Quit Thunderbird to continue.
pretty sure this is a dupe
Severity: normal → major
(In reply to comment #1) > pretty sure this is a dupe Could not find it.
Mitra , anything in Tools -> Error Console when this happens ?
I haven't noticed this for a long time, and indexing/compression behavior seems to have been changed in the meantime.
Ok thanks fro replying. -> WFM
