just wondered if anyone else has this bug when composing mail.

If typing a email with 3 to 4 paragraphs, it sends the email whilst still typing.

Another possible bug in os3 perhaps?

    Are you sure, that's it's really sending out the unfinished mail?

    I think what you see is when Mail saves the unfinished mail in the Drafts-folder, what happens periodically. The longer you type on a message, the more often Mail saves the mail to this folder.

    If you work on an IMAP-account, the Drafts-folder is on the IMAP-server, so each time Mail saves the mail, it "sends" the mail (but not out to the recipient, just to the IMAP-server).

    Yes it definitely sends, as the sending status bar at the bottom is shown & if I check sent items, email is there.
