Today I got a send error stating that my message could not be copied to the sent box. When looking at local settings\temp I observed iterations of NSCopy.tmp and NSCopy1.tmp. Both with 0 bits/bytes.

check your settings: edit, mail & newsgroups account settings, select the account, and under Copies & Folders, make sure that everything is pointing to the correct folder. And look very closely because what looks correct, really isn't.

In each of my 10 mail accounts/copies and folders/ all I have is the name of the mail boxes (sent, drafts, templates), under the account name. Example: under the account Heavy Duty, in the window for sent, it reports Heavy Duty. These are all correct. I can find no suggestion for a path path that goes to documents and settings\ (username)\local settings\temp. That is the directory where these NS*.* show up. Just now as I was attempting to send out an e-mail, it failed with this message: "unable to save message as draft." (I think because the message on the screen had hit the time-out before holding as a draft) "Unable to open the temporary file Documents and Settings\(username)\temp\nsmail.pdf. Check your temporary directory settings." When I looked in the temp file, there was a nsmail.eml file and an nscopy.tmp file both timed to the present/current date/time. Each file was a little less than 2KB.

did you follow the instructions I gave: Edit, Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings, select the account and under Copies & Folders? It sure does't sound like it.

I thought I followed your directions.
Is this screen shot what you were expecting?

yes it is. Now, is this message a posting to a newsgroup or an email message?

Thanks for your continued interest.

I think you are asking about what I was sending by what mechanism.

This is all about sending e-mails.

I have had this happen a number of times when sending an html e-mail message with a pdf attachment to multiple recipients. I have posted my frustrations about this in the past to this NG
The particular circumstances in the last two days consist of sending to both multiple recipients in html with a pdf attachment AND sending a plain text message with a pdf attachment to two persons. As you can see, I have gotten a variety of different error messages. What ever is going on is going in the ...\temp subdirectory and concerns various NS*.* temporary files. Sometimes they must not get made, sometimes they get reduced to 0 bytes, or get corrupted, and sometimes they are not deleted after sending.

Does this provide enough detail?

ok, lets try a few things:

-- Compact the folders -- under File

-- if that doesn't work, then close SM, and delete all the *.msf files for that account.

-- if that doesn't work, then Edit, Preferences, Mail & Newsgroups, Composition, and on the top right, is something about automatically saving. Uncheck it.

*IMPORTANT*: Sorry folks, but I cannot provide email help!!!! Emails to me may become public
