Steps to reproduce:

My colleague forwarded an email to me as an attachment (using Thunderbird). I opened the attached forwarded email by clicking 'ForwardedMessage.eml' and hit Reply All. I wrote my message and clicked Send. My colleague received my reply so it was in fact sent.

Actual results:

The message was not listed in my Sent folder.

Expected results:

It should have been listed in my Sent folder.

It turnes out this was due to Thunderbird not using the correct account when composing the reply, see bug #867539 for the discussion related to that.
