Ahh, got it...

Right, and this is something that has always bugged me about TB (2, and
now 3)... the error message is wrong. If it successfully sends the
message, but has an error saving to the Sent folder, the error message
says 'There was a problem *sending* your message...' - I keep forgetting
to go open a bug report, but I'll do that now... thanks for the
reminder... :)
