User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/2008070208 Firefox/3.0.1
Build Identifier: 8.0.0b

Kubuntu 8.04.01.  Fresh install.  Installed in /usr/local/eudora as root.  Linked the binary eudora into /usr/local/bin.  Have 2 independent pop accounts and one SMTP.  Problem exists on all POP accounts.  I have verified that I have write access and ownership of the directory ~/.thunderbird/pzsm9lln.default/Mail/LocalFolders, all files in it, and all subdirs and files.  Note that I changed this to eliminate the space in "Local Folders".  I also verified that there are several G free in all file systems.  It does not seem to matter. Messages send without error.  I tried Thunderbird and SeaMonkey. They do not have this problem.  

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compose email to self
2. Send it
3. Use "Get Mail" button on GUI
Actual Results:  
Get a dialog that says "There was an error downloading the following message:" bla bla bla "This message may contain a virus or there is not enough disk space.  Skip this message?"  If I hit "No", then I get another dialog that says "Unable to write email to mailbox.  ... write privileges ... disk space to copy the mailbox."  I have plenty of disk space and write privileges.

Expected Results:  
The email to be downloaded and sound to be played.

Works fine for me under Linux (though admittedly not tested under Kubuntu). Marking Worksforme.

Please do try the latest beta ( to see if it exhibits the same problem for you.
