           Summary: Disturbing double bug: Instead of deleting e-mails,
                    Claws Mail severely messes up the "Sent" folder

Hi everyone,

first of all a big "thank-you" to all of you for developing, maintaing and
supporting this wonderful piece of software!

Having been a Thunderbird user for many years, I strongly got the impression
that Thunderbird became buggier with every new version (in the end, it even
completely crashed my big profile, and it took me ages to recover the stuff
that was in there).

Looking for a rock-solid alternative, I came to Claws. One of the MX-16 Linux
package builders thankworthily packaged the 3.15.0 code, and I am testing it

Now I am encountering some very strange behaviour which IMHO points to some
major bug in the 3.15.0 version:

I deleted several e-mails from the Inbox. Later, I happened to check the "Sent"
folder, and what I found there was double disturbing:

1) My would-be deleted e-mails from the "Inbox" now all of a sudden happened to
be moved to "Sent".

2) Plus, which was even more disturbing: All information about the e-mail shown
in Claws' e-mail overwiew was correct, but when clicking on each and every one
of the "deleted" e-mails, Claws showed me e-mail text bodies from completely
different e-mails that had nothing to do with these.

I didn't do anything unusual that would really explain this behaviour. The only
"unusual" thing that had occured before was this: I had used a 3.13.0
installation before. As 3.15.0 had been unwilling to swallow my 3.13.0
".claws-mail" profile, I had deleted it and had made Claws set up a new one.

Greetings, and thanks in advance for looking into this,
