Overview: Sometimes the text in the task try is truncated. For instance it
displays the name of the account followed by "h" (i.e. qatest22 h  ) so that
it's trying to display "qatest22 has 1 new message".

Steps to reproduce: I'm not sure if you need all these accounts:
1. Create a profile with 4 mail accounts (webmail, imap, pop, aol, 1 news account.)
I'm not sure if the type of accounts or the order is important.
2. Set biff to 2 minutes for each account
3. Login to all accounts
4. Send a message to all accounts

Actual Results: Eventually the alert appears so move the mouse to the alert so
that the tooltip appears. In my case it displayed:

qatest33 has 1 new message
qatest20 has 1 new message
webmail1 h

Expected Results: It should display all the text in the alert. 

Additional Information:
- My screen resolution is set to 1024x768

a windows tooltip can only be 64 characters long. That's why it's truncating. We
had code to only show you new mail for the # of accounts that cleanly fit into
64 bytes but that must no longer be working.
