From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; 0.8) Gecko/20010219 BuildID: 20010215 (0.8) My organization's SMTP server only accepts mail either for o delivery to users at the site o mail sent by users who read mail from the site When I tried sending mail before reading mail, the mail composition window went away normally, but after a short pause a dialog popped up saying that the SMTP server denied service: no relaying. I expected that Mozilla would have saved my message either in Sent, Unsent, Drafts, or Trash folders, but it did not appear in any of the folders. --> mozilla should save mail in this case, perhaps in the unsent folder and/or it might bring the Composition window back with the composed mail so users can see their message isn't lost. Reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: 1. set SMTP server to one that does not accept relaying 2. attempt to send mail 3. wait while status line says "sending mail" 4. if fails, dialog appears saying service denied, no -relaying Actual Results: Composed message was lost. Expected Results: Either o Composition window re-appears with composed message, or o composed message is saved to Unsent messages folder (I haven't been able to reproduce it because the SMTP mailer has a long timeout, and I need to continue to read mail.) (I encountered the problem with the 0.8 release build; I am reporting this from the 2001021904 build.) i hope this is enuf!
Ccing myself, this bug related to bug 69123. Ccing Seth, Seth, how do you think about this bug? Currently, from Commercial build - the compose window will display after the SMTP server denied service, but how about save this unsent message in the unsend folder? Which way suppose to work for the compose window for the SMTP server denied service?
Oops! Typo! I mean bug 69163.
I couldn't reproduce this problem on today's commercial build 02-19-06-Mtrunk build. Is this specific problem on Mozilla build?
