Re: [opensuse] thunderbird + imap issue
Per Jessen said the following on 10/19/2011 04:07 AM:
I have recently switched to IMAP, and I'm seeing a little weird issue
with TB - occasionally I'll start replying to a mail, then get
interrupted and save it in Drafts (or it happens automatically). WHen I
resume a little later and send the mail, the copy in Drafts isn't
deleted and sometimes the original mail isn't tagged as "replied to".

I am still using TB2 (not sure if Lightning works with TB3).
Has anyone seeing a similar issue?

I've been using TBird for a very long while and have used it with a few
different versions of IMAP. Your problem isn't with IMAP.

Your problem may be with TB.
I'm using 7.0.1 and yes I'm using it with Lightening 1.0b7

As you compose your message gets saved at the interval you set in the
preferences. If that interval is small and you take a long time
composing then there will be a series of such snapshots. As each new
one is added the previous one is _marked_ deleted.

When you 'send' the last one will be marked deleted.
Yo have to purge them manually, just as with the 'marked deleted' in any
other folder, or have that done automatically on exit.

Your PROBLEM, if I read correctly is "Why the interrupts?"

I've had that happen very rarely. usually some finger trouble or
context switching.

Are you really still using TB2?
I'd suggest an upgrade.
There is no greater mistake than the hasty conclusion that opinions are
worthless because they are badly argued.
