Single Identity, displays many times in drop-down list
Using 1999080909 on win95 if you have a single Id but several accounts, you will see that same ID listed several times in the drop-down From: field of a New Msg window. Still trying to check Mac and Linux to see if this is all. 0. Set up your preference to have a single ID, but several accounts. (I have firstname.lastname@example.org as my Id which is associated with my IMAP account. I also have 1 POP account and 2 News accounts) 1. Launch Messenger 2. Click New Msg button 3. Collapse then Expand the Addressing pane by clicking the bar in the left border of the Addressing pane. 4. Click on the down arrow of the From Field. Results: email@example.com is listed 4 times Expected: firstname.lastname@example.org is listed only once
Just checked Mac, this is a problem on Mac too. Changing platform to all, will check linux when we get a new build.
cc'ing alecf. I think this is because we create a new identity for each server so when the list comes back from the account manager, the same name shows up multiple times.
yes, that is in fact exactly what that is. I'll see if I can't uniquify the list somehow.
reassign to Alec
moving to M10

Using 19991003 on win and 19991001 on mac and linux this is fixed. Another bug was opened (15621) for the duplicate identities being displayed now. Verified
