  1. HUGE BUG 2.0 beta 2

    Probably exists in all previous versions of Thunderbird as well,
    certainly since the Global Inbox was introduced.

    If you have an account that has its own separate folders and you change
    it to use the Global Inbox, you get a message that all your existing
    messages will be deleted. Fair enough.

    But!!!! any sent items or whatever that were set to use the old
    account's own folders don't get redirected to the Sent folder in Local
    Folders, they just disappear into a black hole.

    And, I suspect that messages coming into the inbox, some of them may
    disappear as well. I've had the New Message sound, checked for a new
    message, found nothing. No message. Strange coincidence.
