I have encountered that message several times, and in my case, just creating 
the directory is not a good solution. My use case is that I have several email 
accounts in the same notmuch database that I want to treat separately (personal 
gmail, personal non-gmail, work...). I encounter this error when I manually 
change the sending address (it defaults to the one used most often) and then 
the FCC does not match properly. I use the error to signal that I should edit 
the FCC line as well.

This was an accident, as I did not originally intend to use the error to catch 
my mistakes and sometimes it cannot detect that. But just creating extra 
directories would be worse from my POV. I do agree a clearer error message 
would be helpful (it took me a while to figure out the email is actually sent 
before the error and I should not resend).

Thanks for all your combined efforts!
