See attach. I am able to reproduce the problem by saving the file in .mail/ and trying to reply to the this mail as seen in the newly found mbox (after a manually initiated rescan of the mailboxes).

Using Balsa 2.3.2 manually compiled in an up-to-date Ubuntu Hoary. Locale settings are ro_RO (iso-8859-2).

Hmmm...I can't reproduce that. I started Balsa with LANG=ro_RO.ISO-8859-2, which made everything look quite strange, but I could still reply to that message.

Afaict, the only thing that's odd about it is charset=utf-8, and Balsa should cope with that. But you could hand-edit that to make it something else (us-ascii?) and see what happens.

Doesn't make any difference. When I reply, I still get an empty compose message. By the way, "utf-8" (or at least "iso-8859-2") is needed as my name has an "s cedilla" in it.

However, changing the locale settings to ro_RO.UTF-8 with "export LC_ALL=ro_RO.UTF-8" solved the problem. I was able to reply to your mail just fine. I'll test at home too ASAP with iso-8859-2 locale settings, I have Balsa on two machines there running sid and sarge, and I use the officialy packages from Debian. I'll have to change to iso-8859-2 locale settings though, as at home I always use UTF-8.

I've been able to reproduce the problem with the official Balsa 2.3.0 package from Debian 3.1r0 Sarge too if the locale settings are set to ro_RO.ISO-8859-2 (with ro_RO.UTF-8 everything is just fine). I think I know what causes it too... Your mail was written in a Saturday, which in Romanian locale settings is "Sîmbătă", short form "Sî". This short form is missing from the "Date" field in the mailbox view and replying to such a mail is not really possible, I get an empty window when trying to reply :(

I'm attaching two lil' screenshots to see what I mean with the incomplete "Date" field in the mailbox view. Sorry for the delay, ASAP was not really ASAP, but I hope the wait was well worth it as I managed in the end to link these two bugs. Usually at work, where I use ISO-8859-2 settings, there are no mails on Saturday that I need to respond, so I didn't notice.

I'm also aware of another nasty bug when replying... If you save repeatedly a reply when composing in Balsa's composer window, the mail loses the In-Reply-To header. To replicate it reply to a mail, save it once, look at the source of the draft, notice the In-Reply-To header, then save one more time and look again at the draft. The In-Reply-To header is gone.

If needed, I may fill the bug reports in Bugzilla and test for the fixes, I'll try to be as responsive as possible.
