When looking at my Temp File I see nsmail.emls.
Is this a bug?
How do I stop TB from adding my emails to the Temp file?

Thanks in advance.

Its a not a bug. nsmail.eml, nsmail.tmp, and nsmail.html are temporary files created when sending a message.

I have just noticed those files too. From what I understand, TB should be deleting those files on exit but that's recently started not to happen. I'm still on v68 - what could be causing that?

Well, it happened once today but now can't repro it. Also, the file names are nsemail, not nsmail. I don't see them listed at http://kb.mozillazine.org/Files_and_fol ... hunderbird.
