Anyone else had this problem and know the solution?


Under advanced server settings for the account, how many connections is
it set to cache?  What IMAP server do you use?

Cache is default (5) and am using Cyrus IMAP 21


Ding! Ding! Ding!

The Cyrus IMAP server will allow a max of 2 or 4 (I forget which). You need to reduce the number of cached connections in T-bird, or you will continue to see the same problem whenever you send a message that should also be copied into the Sent folder.

I had the same exact problem when I was using Cyrus. I finally ended up switching to Courier, though for a number of other reasons as well.
