error when sending mail

Hi,

When sending mail, I get this warning:

WARNING: Problem sending mail: File or folder does not exist - <path/to/maildir/sent/folder>/tmp/1275359009.7145703845.sysopweg:2,S

However, the mail was sent (and did arrive), but it was not saved as a 
sent messages in my sent-mail maildir folder (which is totally empty).

Any ideas about how to solve/diagnose this?

TIA,

Erik

Sup version?  Ruby version?

That'll help get the ball rolling for diagnosing things.

Thanks

listing archived threads

'sup sup users!
I'm new to sup.
Can anyone tell me how to list archived threads?
deleted threads get a "deleted" label by which they may be listed
(with the L command)
But there is no "archived" label...

Thanks,

An archived thread is just one that isn't marked with an `inbox' label.

Do a search for "!inbox" or "before:tomorrow" or the like.

Is the above <path/to/maildir/...> bit something you did or is it
actually part of the error message?  What is the value of sent_source
in your config.yaml?

This is normal.

Thanks

<path/to/maildir/sent/folder> is what I replaced the actual path given in 
the error message with (it was /home/equaeghe/Mail/sent); it now does seem 
a useless modification

:sent_source: maildir:/home/equaeghe/Mail/sent

Ah. Can I change it so that it does save sent mails? Or should I 
explicitly set Fcc when sending mail?

Best,

Erik

And a dumb question from me: /home/equaeghe/Mail/sent does contain the
maildir subfolders cur, new and tmp?

Ok, this looks fine as long as /home/equaeghe/Mail/sent is a proper
maildir setup.

Sorry, I meant normal in the sense that sending the mail and storing
mail in the sent source are two separate (non-atomic) actions.  When
you hit the send key, the message is dumped into $sendmail for
transport.  It's then written to the sent source.  These are
independent.  One may succeed while the other fails.

Thanks
-Ben

Just a guess, but according to NewUserGuide.txt the mailbox
URIs start with maildir:// or mbox://.  Therefore try:

    :sent_source: maildir:///home/equaeghe/Mail/sent

Note the two extra slashes.

I did not and that fixed it. I assumed those would be created as-needed.

Thanks,
