This works for me running Mac/2001080214 under OS 9.1. Someone running 8.6 should 
test this.

I did some more investigating of this bugs behaviour. If these steps are
followed you should see the bug I am discribing:

1. Launch Mail.
2. Open a email message.
3. Click on reply. (A correct compose window opens with all the reply info)
4. Close the reply window without typing anything or sending the reply.
5. Read some newsgroup messages.
6. Return to mail and reply to an email message. (The result is a balnk copose
window with none of the information filled in in either the adress or message
7. Mozilla hangs and is frozen.

This bug occurs on OS 8.6. I believe if you follow the above steps you will also
see this bug. Let me know. Thanks.

Hm. I can't confirm that exact behavior, but I experience something strange, also. 
Following your revised steps, once I get to step 6 I can no longer get message lists for any 
e-mail folder. The Message List pane is simply blank. Weird.

If I then close Mail/News and reopen, Message Lists appear normally.

Well, I won't be able to confirm this bug, precisely, so I'll leave it unconfirmed for 
someone to reproduce, probably with OS 8.6 specifically.

using 2001-08-14-04 build on mac 8.6 I was not able to reproduce this problem.
Reporter, I followed all your steps from 1-7 but not was able to reproduce the 
hang.  Marking this worksforme.  Reopen if this persists on the recent builds.
