Build 1999091709M11: Win32/NT4 (Linux and Mac. Check with more detail later) Overview: For accounts created through Account Wizard various Account Settings problems occur or problems with using the accounts also occur. 1. Problem: Using the 9/16 and 9/17 build. Can't send messages using accounts created with Account Wizard, whether it's IMAP or POP. The barber scrollbar keeps turning and never stops. Yet migrated accounts can send messages. Expect. Ability to send messages after creating new accounts through Account Wizard. 2. Problem: When creating a POP account with Account Wizard, check the settings in Account Setting's Server panel. Notice Server Type: statement shows "News server" when it should reference POP. Expect: Problem only occurs when creating the account using the Account Wizard. It should display "POP Mail Server" If I migrate then the server panel reports a POP server as expected.

These are pretty unrelated behaviors. can you make a new bug for the second issue? Also, can you try the first issue again with today's build? I've changed the way SMTP servers are maintined... this may fix this problem
Summary: Acct Wizard-->Problems with Account Settings and Accounts → Can't send messages on newly created accounts (old smtp arch)
this seems to be a problem with not having a userid in the smtp server pane. Investigating further.
I logged a separate bug for issue #2 (bug# 14531)

Turns out issue #1 is a dupe of the newly filed bug #14500. Since that bug has way more details on what was going on, I'm marking this one a dupe of that. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 14500 ***
