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
esther@netscape.com 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: esther@netscape.com is listed 4 times
Expected:  esther@netscape.com 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.

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
