First off i would like to note that i was using the "Portable apps" version of Thunder bird. (Available at )

I was using Thunder bird, listening to some music and IMming some people, When i decided to send this Music file to a friend i was IMming. It was a 8.76 MB MP3 file. So i started to send the file, and it began. i waited a while, cause my internet isnt that fast, and it said message sent successfully. When ever i send an Email it stays open for like 3 seconds then auto terminates. Then i noticed it was still open, and it had that frozen type thing it does when a process doesnt get any cpu. The last window that was on it is the image that shows up.

When i try to close the window with the X Button, I get the "DUH" error sound windows makes. The inbox still functions perfectly, and that is how i got the build information.

When i clicked on the write button again, a new compose [overtook?] the old one and i was able to close the compose window then.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
Didnt feel like waiting the 20 minutes it originally took to send the file.

My guess would be that it was trying to copy the message to the Sent folder, and didn't take well to being interrupted.

Are your sent messages being stored locally on the (portable) disk or on a remote server?

Dup of Bug 347693 or a bug listed in dependency tree for Bug 347693.

Do you enable "auto-save"? If yes, enable "Show confirmation dialog when messages are saved" of Tools/Account Settings/Copies&Folders. You see dialog upon "save to drafts" completion, then you can see "what is happening during compose/just before send" than current.

sounds like dupe of bug(s) that fail on fcc
Whiteboard: dupeme
Because auto-save is relevant, I think DUPing to Bug 380275 is appropriate.
(Bug 380275 is listed in dependency tree for Bug 347693.)
