Believe it or not there are people like me who still use NETSCAPE 1 for e mail!

Anyway, here's my problem:

When I try to send an e mail it said:

"The message was sent successfully but could not be copied to your SENT folder"

I went to the MAIL & NEWSGROUPS ACCOUNT SETTINGS and to make sure it's going to the correct folder but that doesn't help!

How can I fix this?

Thanks.

I don't believe it! :)

Are you using this client with a POP or IMAP account?
If it's a pop account and the mailbox structure is store locally on your HD, could be a permissions issue (corruption)

I couldn't tell you exactly where Netscape stores them, but it's likely in you /Users/yourUserName/Library/Application Support

You would have to use /Applications/Utilities/Terminal and navigate to that folder and user
Code:
ls -l
to check the permissions.

Thanks for replying so quickly. I think i wrongly said NETSCAPE 1. It's 7,1.

Anyway, I have a Mac which may or may not make a difference. I went to the Applications/Utilities/Terminal and it shows:

Last login: Sun Nov 20 11:49:12 on ttys000
paul-dowlings-power-mac-g5:~ pauldowling$

Any idea where to go now?

Thanks

That is just a shell prompt. From there you can browse the local filesystem.
(eg command like cd -> change directory, ls -l -> to list current directories)

I found a thread from 2003 where someone had the same issues as you, but no solution was posted. (still looking)

Edit: If you type this after that prompt:
Code:
cd ~/Library/Mozilla/profiles
does it work or say no such directory?

Who is your email account with? (AOL, netscape, AIM, hotmail, etc)

I ask because I found some info on Sent Folder being removed for some providers.

Hi

I am with COMCAST but use NETSCAPE 7.1 to get my e mails. I have been using this since Day 1 and am just used to it.

I had this problem a few years ago but forget how I fixed it!!

Thanks again for trying to help me.
