She sends out 75 at a time. She is using Thunderbird 188.8.131.52 on XP-Pro-SP3 Problem: she gets an error message: The message could not be copied or moved to folder "sent" because writing to folder failed. To gain disk space, from the file menu, first choose empty trash, and then choose compact folder, and then try again. And, this does work. 1) she has lots free disk space (281G). Why does she have to empty the Trash? 2) what does the Trash box have to do with the sent box? 3) she *is* automatically compacting folders at 1M. Many thanks, -T Reproducible: Always
File size are limited on windows - so if you reach that limit - you need to clean up - as there is no way for Thunderbird to figure out what can be and how to clean things up. File limit on windows is around 4GB. 2) might be a issue with the error message.

Do you run an anti-virus and did you enable Tools->security->Anti-virus-> Allow anti-virus to quantine ?
I will ask the customer about the Quarantine. She is using Kaspersky Word Space Security (KWSS) (kav184.108.40.2067_winwksen.exe). I will also check to see if KWSS is checking outgoing eMail. That feature has been know to screw up eMailing of attachments (every AV, not just KWSS). -T
Kaspersky was check outgoing eMail. I turned it off. This feature never work right with any AV. Under Tools-->Options-->Privacy-->Anti-virus, allow Quarantine was off. I turned it on. The customer does not do another eMail blast like this until September. We will keep you informed. Many thanks, -T
Sounds like another case of bug 494706.
