buildid:2001-04-18-08 and 2001-04-17-06 Having specified the recipient the first time trying to send the message complains about not specifying a recipient. This only happens when launching the application from the command prompt with -mail. If you open mail from the browser task menu bar you will not see this problem. This happens only with the first compose window and the first time you want to send mail. When you close that widow cancelling sending or saving it to drafts. The next new message can be composed and send successfully without even restarting the application. steps to reproduce: start the application with -mail from the command prompt click new message compose a test message Make sure you specify a recipient Try to send this message Actual Result: No recipient were specified. Please enter a recipient or newsgroup in the addressing area

I am unable to reproduce this using this morning's release build as well as my debug build today.
this is the problem seth reported a while ago that we are not able to reproduce all the time... *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 73048 ***

Well this bug did not have anything to do with the send format dlg (intelligent send) that comes up while sending html text. I was typing just plain text in the html compose and it happens only the firt time you launch mail, compose and try to send. I was able to reproduce this on Stephen's linux machine too on today's build. However, the error reported by seth did have the same no recipients dlg appearing. I am still seeing this on my linux - buildid 2001041708. As a matter of fact it is very annoying that I cannot send mail the first time I compose after launching the application.
This was on my machine when Sheela showed this to me, I don't think it a DUP of that HTML message, we were sending plain text, and were able to send *only* the 2nd time after an unsuccessful send (no recipients specified alert() ). Linux build 2001041808.

When do you have the problem, are you able to enter more than one recipients (on separated rows)?
JFD, The first time you open mail and open compose window by clicking new message button. You cannot enter more than one recipient. That is when with one recipient when you try sending mail is when you would see this error. But if you close this window and open a new compose window no problem. You can enter multiple recipients and also send mail in the same session.
this is the same problem than bug 73048 but until now we weren't able to figure out how the reproduce the problem at 100%. For some obscure reason, I cannot read the date of the input field!!!

I'm seeing this problem on 2001050209, for what that's worth. Been seeing it for a while. I've kind of gotten the impression that if I type the text of my message and then type the recipient's address, I don't get the problem. It's if the first thing I do is enter a recipient that I get the problem (the cursor automatically goes to the recipient field). I've also seen the problem several times since I ran mail/news, not just the first message after running the app (I've seen it with new mesgs and fwds).
I think this problem is gone since the landing of the new modern theme and the new autocomplete widget. Please try it again with a recent build. Thanks
buildid:2001050706 on linux, JFD, I don't see the no recipients dialog anymore. This is not a problem anymore. I guess this can be a worksforme. I have been using this build for 2 days now and have not come across the problem. You can mark it fixed or worksforme and I will verify it.

I have the problem with Build 2001050521. can anybody say if its fixed in later versions ? I still have the problem. I can't enter more than one recp. and it refuses to send. My workaround is to hit the "adress" button, add a known recp. and the deleting it again in the field (not address dialog).
*** Bug 94665 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Reopening this bug based on comments from bug 94665. This problem has been by a few people in the latest builds. However, this happens the first time composing mail that the recipient is not recognised. Please see bug 94665 that this problem seems to have come back since many people have reported seeing this already.

I close this bug as before and leave the new bug open since the new problem could be related to a different issue all together.

This sounds exactly like the bug I'm still experiencing in Moz 0.9.5. I opened bug 94665. I always open Moz with -mail and pretty much always the first message I compose (if new and not a reply) doesn't recognize the To field. The drop down address selection box doesn't pop up etc. So I would say that this bug is most certainly NOT "RESOLVED WORKSFORME".
