Thunderbird is not copying outgoing email to the Sent folder.
I am using the Thunderbird 2 beta for my email client. In fact, I wrote an initial review for CMP Tech Web, and one of the things that impressed me about the early Beta was how well the program worked, especially when you consider I was looking at an early Beta.
Well, I just found a flaw in the latest build. where my outgoing mail is not being copied to my Sent folder. I checked my account settings, and as you would expect, the default is to send copies to the Sent folder for all outgoing mail. The problem is that it's not happening.
I sent myself a couple of test emails to make sure that mail was really going out, and it was, so that's not the issue. Something tells me that the developers broke something in this build. So it goes when running Beta software, but let's hope they fix this flaw soon.
1/12/07 Update: This issue was fixed in a new build the other day. I got around it by copying my outgoing messages to my Gmail account, but I'm glad it's fixed. The latest problem involves a speed issue, but new builds come through a couple of times a day on average, so I'm sure the programmers will straighten it out.
