Not sending EHLO after having error with saving to sent folder
If you set up your IMAP sent folder to a bogus folder and compose a mail and press Send, the mail gets send and you get an error saying "you send operation went fine, but unable to save to sent folder....". In this dialog press Ok and return to the Compose dialog. Now press Send againg and you get this error: "An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: Polite people say HELO first. Please verify that you email address is correct in you Mail prefereces and try again." Im attaching the SMTP log...
ahh looks like someone is holding onto the smtp protocol instance and we try to reuse it. This may be causing some of the other EHLO/HELO errors I have bugs about. This is bad.
Just a note that the first SMTP transaction is correct but all subsequent ones forget to say EHLO, at least that's what happens on Linux. My sendmail does not return an error to the sending client but does make a syslog entry and also adds a header like this: X-Authentication-Warning: darkstar.frop.org: localhost [127.0.0.1] didn't use HELO protocol to the message so all recipients know Mozilla screwed up. Many will assume the sender is a spammer. Not good at all.
I have a fix for this.

Now I'm not getting the "EHLO" error anymore, but something is still very wrong. The error lies in bug 47311.
