The outbox shows one unsent message, until I select it. Upon selecting the outbox, the message count goes to zero, and there are no unsent messages in the outbox. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open Thunderbird 2. 3. Actual Results: I get the drop-down message Expected Results: Not shown an unsent message in the outbox if there was none.
Does rebuidling the index of the outbox folder fixes the issue ?
I don't know what you mean by "rebuilding the index of the outbox folder." If you could tell me how to do that, I'd love to try.
Sure my bad :-) Right click on the outbox -> properties -> Repair folder.

I have exactly the same problem here with my Thunderbird 7.0.1 (running on Windows 7 Home Premium x64). Unfortunately, folder / index repair does not resolve the issue (the "zombie" message is still present each time I start Thunderbird until I click on the outbox folder once). I also tried the same in SafeMode (= no Add-ons) with no success. As I am unable to re-open this bug but also don't want to file a new one, I hope the a bug tracker manager will read this and consider re-opening.
