Steps to reproduce:

I logged into Thunderbird and let it download POP mail normally.  While it was doing that, I noticed it had put something in Trash (presumably junk) and went there to look at it.


Actual results:

I got repeated pop-ups saying there is an error appending to folder INBOX, and I should try deleting the .msf file.  (I've seen this happen from other causes too, and it's not always the same folder.)


Expected results:

No message, no interruptions by pop-ups, especially no repeated ones.

How big is your Inbox folder exactly? Are you using FAT16/FAT32/NTFS/network storage?
