Description Richard Schwab 2013-04-22 16:38:54 CEST
Hey there,

I'm using and IMAP4.

Today I had the following problem:

I'm using an UMTS mobile internet connection.
I selected a few mails in Claws-Mail and told it to move them to some different folder, while I was doing that my connection dropped.
When I reconnected it it just deleted the messages, without realizing that they weren't copied previously, resulting in me loosing some mails.

The mail was moved inside one IMAP account from one folder to another.

Cannot reproduce this.

I killed the connection during the move operation on a large file. When I resumed the connection the file was still in the original folder, but now has a 'message is marked for move' icon in the S (status) column.

Can you reproduce your problem?

I meant 'message' not 'file', of course.
