Linux (2000-08-08-08 M18) Win32 (2000-08-08-09 M18) Mac (2000-08-08-08 M18) 1. Launch Messenger 2. From the Imap account (or POP account) Inbox, select any message 3. Switch to another folder, select a message 4. Go back to the Inbox folder, Actual result: The selection point is gone in the Inbox folder 5. Switch back to the folder in step 3. Actual result: The selection point is also gone Expected result: The selection point should move to the top of the list when switch folders or views. (This is observed in Nova) This occurs on all platforms.
moving to future milestone.
I find this defect maddening, it causes me to lose my place in thousands of messages, dozens of times every day. The correct behavior is NOT to select the first message, that was just a defect in Nova on some platforms. The selection should be persisted in the folder, as is done in Outlook Express. The user put the selection there, and the program has no business changing it to something else, especially when it would mark some message read in the process. This makes multiple folder support almost worthless, IMO. If I weren't getting paid to use the product, this bug alone would be enough to make me toss it in the trash. Removing future target for re-triage, please consider fixing it for MachV.
