From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.5+) Gecko/20011101 BuildID: 2001110101 Hi, I´m using one of those stupid POp3 server who shares several virtual domains, so my user name is my real email address: "firstname.lastname@example.org" When setting up a POP3 account using the Mail & Newsgroup Account Settings, Mozilla "fixes" the "email@example.com" to "xxxx". It´s wierdo because I´m not getting the same results in Netscape 6.2 ... well in fact it even prohibits me from changing the "User name". Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Create a mail account with username like "firstname.lastname@example.org" 2.change to a different account setup page 3.the username will be "fixed" to "xxxx" instead of "email@example.com" Actual Results: mozilla reported that server answered with wrong password. Expected Results: log me in? :-)
sorry for the delay. I tried with no sucess. It keeps changing my correct username at the account setting tab
I have changed to the Mozilla 0.9.6 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.6) Gecko/20011120 sucess but it seems we have a new problem... in this release, mozilla freezes when I change the account name. I have to change it on the prefs.js by hand.
It can be linked to BUG # 101513 The manually change of prefs.js is not 100% working, in fact i is not working. Fully described in that BUG. I can repeat some new tests if needed. I did test it Release 0.9.6, 0.9.6+ 2001112009 and also some older versions of 0.9.5+ and 0.9.6 pre releases. (Win98SE) Shortly, the manually change of username in prefs.js causes that mozilla cannot see the folders (including sent folder and all folders created by user).
I am a former Earthlink customer. (Dropped them to go with broadband.) IIRC, Earthlink has moved to a similar system for their POP3 access. The proper POP3 username there was firstname.lastname@example.org . Maybe this bug can be confirmed by someone who knows more than I do. I'm changing the summary line. Old: mozilla changes my user name incorrectly New: POP3 username: mozilla changes my user name incorrectly
Summary: mozilla changes my user name incorrectly → POP3 username: mozilla changes my user name incorrectly
Reporter, I created a new profile using 2001-12-18-06 build on win98. While I was creating this mail account I did specify my username with email@example.com in the account wizard. I was able to log in. I checked in server settings and the username was set correctly. I did not have to change pref.js file Can you try a latest build?
I made new test on 2001121803 under Win98 I have test e-mail account firstname.lastname@example.org both the SMTP and POP3 servers are poczta.fm I did set the account and as pop3 username set the mozill string than i did edit the username to correct one 'mozilla' the alert about changing username appeard and after mozilla hangs and was not responding Than i remove the account set same but set as username the mozillaa string edit the username once again to correct string 'mozilla' All is working now!!!!! So the changing USERNAME is POSSIBLE if new POP3 username is shorter than the PREVIOUS one!!!! maby it can help with tracking the bug!
Is this about editing username and server name in account manager? I know email@example.com works.
over to cavin, because i see this line So the changing USERNAME is POSSIBLE if new POP3 username is shorter than the PREVIOUS one!!!!

The name change bug is fixed by bug 113590 (on 01/02/2002). Sheela can you verify it again (as I could not get it to fail using 01/17/02 build)?
I used 2002-01-22-06 build on mac 9.1 and I was not able to reproduce this problem. I also tested following the steps in bug 113590. Changing the user name does not cause application to crash or hang. Checked it on mac os x using 2002-01-18-06 build and could not reproduce the problem. worksforme.
Andre, when you get a chacne can you try the latest build and see if the problems you mentioned in the bug are gone now? Thanks.
Is this bug a duplicate of bug 65649 (or vice versa)?
Moving to moizlla1.0.
Target Milestone: mozilla0.9.9 → mozilla1.0
Note the originally stated bug is fixed. We don't change the user name when it has an @ in the name. We also allow for the user to edit the username field. And, I am not seeing the hang reported on 1-23 by Andre. Sheela verified the "shorter name problem" as stated in comment #9. Note: I did see a crash on winxp & linux while testing this, however I found out it's not dependent on changing the user name it's cancelling the password dialog while the failed loging is checking the server again. I'll log a new one for that. So Andre, can you tell us if this works for you now. Jakub, can you tell us if this is working for you too.
Just an update to above message about a crash. Didn't find a bug, but can't reproduce with 3-7 trunk builds so no bug logged.

This bug is not fixed in build 2002041711 for win32. It makes email totally unusable for me. The old netscape communicator had this bug too. I actually have to use an MSFT product to read my email now.
May this bug should be marked as "fixed"? Since build 1.0 I was not able to reproduce (in fact I had been using the mozilla mail with login = firstname.lastname@example.org without problems). Seems to be fixed.
Resolving as Works-For-Me per reporter's comment 20.
