Description

8 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.0; rv:5.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/5.0
Build ID: 20110615151330

Steps to reproduce:

(I work since a long time with fiters to transfer some emails to other maps,nver had a problem with previous versions of thunderbird)
After the error message, I stopped Thinderbird and
I've deleted  in user...app.data....roaming...thunderbird..profiles... the concerning Inbox.msf


Actual results:

The filter did it's work and the transfer was OK, but why this error message?

the next time I've used Thunderbird the error message seems not happen again, but after a while when the filter functions again in order to tranfer a non wished email to the map deleted items, the same error message appears.
I've tried it many times...


Expected results:

Normally when a fitered email goes to another map, there is no error message.

REACTION:
Thank you Wayne Mary!
It certainly has to do with bug 321371.

In the meantime I've upgraded (from TB 5) to version TB 7 and the situation is still the same.I've decided to live with the wrong error message. I simply say OK and the message desappears. I do'nt see anything wrong in my INBOX nor in the Deleted items or another box. I do not delete Inbox.msf. It does'nt repair anything an it takes time to restore the box. I hope the error will be resolved in version 8.
