My old version was 1.3.6. I can't remember when I switched, and I'm not 
sure that the problem started when I switched - even though that would be 
the most logical.

I dint change anything in those settings for several years, so perhaps the 
convertion of old entries to URLs is to blame?

I dint, I guess thats why I never saw that there was something wrong. If I 
put the defect "Fcc" entry back and switch it on it shows 3 entries: 
Sentbox, "blank", Folder (allowing me to select any folder) - the entry 
"Sentbox" is shown as selected.

Now that I switched the 'Show -> Fcc' on I also noticed that the "Fcc" 
lines shows exactly the same without the defect "Fcc" entry in the config 
file!? In fact Balsa adds the exact same entry to my config when I exit!! 
Meaning that the next time I start Balsa up it doesn't save my messages in 
sentbox again! Argh. If I manually edit the file to contain:


Balsa shows the same "Fcc" selector, but saves the following entry:

This seems to be working.. 
Any clues? It seems to me that when Balsa has to guess the right FccMRU 
entry from scratch it gets the "Sentbox" entry from somewhere, but when an 
existing FccMRU is there it keeps it.
