    I have just installed Thunderbird as my email software.

    It works fine except for this: When I send an email, it gives a series of "status" lines, saying things like "connecting to smtp server," and whatnot, and then "Mail sent successfully." And, the mail does appear to be going out okay. But then it says "Copying message to Sent folder." And it just continues to say that and to give the little lines going back and forth and that's all it does. I wait awhile, and then hit the button to close the email I have sent. It then gives me a message that says the email has not been sent, and asking me if I want to copy it into the "Drafts" file. If I say "yes," it begins the same thing, telling me it is copying it, but never doing so.

    If I say no, everything is fine, and lo and behold, the email does appear to have been copied into the sent mail folder.

    Anyone else have this happen? It happens consistently every time I send an email, and while it doesn't appear to affect the functionality of the computer, it is getting annoying.

    Any help would be appreciated.
