Here's a doozie: Forward sends messages from the trash (6.5)

OK Try this... go into your mail select (put a check mark next to) more than one document and drag them to the trash.  Now click once on another document and hit forward.  If you put check marks next to other documents in the inbox and hit forward they all will show up.  It is clear that draging them to the trash doesn't clear the selection.

So why did I post this if I know the answer?  Thought it would be good for the PAQ and I submitted it to Lotus and I will update it when Lotus fixes the bug.

Doesn't happen for me.  But, if it happens for you... try making "magic."

I, the great qwaletee, will amaze you, as I bring back the ghost of dead messages.  Watch!

I kill these messages, check, check check, draf them to the trash.  Begone, foul, messages!

Ah, but if I forward this other message, ah ha!  Look at the ghosts of messages past!

Ah, never tried it in 6.  Your message subject said 6.5, but I only really read the message bodies *grin*

I have 6.0, don't think I ever installed 6.5 client.  Definitely a regression, if it doesn not clear check marks.  If, after dragging things to the trash, you check off one more document, does it say in the status bar "1 document selected" or [many] documents selected?

It says ...many... if u can try it in 6x i am curious to see if it is like the malformed mac attachments that are handled by 6 up to 6.03/6.5 where it then crashes the server.  This is the 2nd bug i found in 4 months.  They should be paying me something...lol

hmmmm.... no error on 6.5.1.  well, i found a better error than that a while back....  iNotes running from any browser other than IE wouldn't print, which means that the whole "IBM + Linux" thing wasn't working too well.  lotus supposedly fixed the issue, although for a while it was locking up our entire linux environment!

I'll have to try the upgrade to 6.5.1 see if that fixes it.  

Well folks I'll give the weekend for an improvement on the "Magician" use and I upped it to 100.

Our support seems to have "lapsed" since they never sent a renewal notice... as soon as that is remedied I have several things to call them about.  Has anyone tried with 653?

(We haven't gotten it yet ... thats how we realized that our agreement had lapsed)

Ours is lapsed too, but on purpose.  Needed to save some $$$.  Now seeing whether we go back on maint and upgrade to 6.5/7.0, or whether we go To The Dark Side.

Pacific Northwest, anyone?
