This is by design. Jennifer, can you update http://www.mozilla.org/mailnews/specs/mailnotify/ to reflect this? Thanks.
Hmm..I thought this was decided. Under 'Open Issues Popup Alerts', see item number 3. 'What if two or more accounts get new messages at the same time? Does one alert with multiple lines appear or do separate alerts appear one after the other? Currently, we check one account after another, so each the first account checked would trigger the alert. If one acct receives new mail first, and you don't click any accounts, bif won't go off again for the next account. Or should it be once per account? '

The current design per mscott is: Currently, we check one account after another. The first account with new messages will trigger the alert. The alert will not go off again until the "new" notification is acknowledged/cleared by selecting the account or requesting new messages. Changes/enhancements should be RFE bugs.
Guess I'll confirm this and set it to RFE status, then. I'm sure I'll have others to DUP against this.

At least show the new mail alert for the primary (default) account. Ideally, show the new mail alert for ALL accounts: +-----------------------+ | ABC: 22 new messages | <-- default account on top | XYZ: 5 new messages | +-----------------------+
This is also the case when starting up MailNews and you have more than one account marked "Check for new messages at startup". Only one account shows a notification.
still there in 1.7a...

To clarify the problem... I have seven email accounts. If all of them have new messages waiting when I start up Thunderbird, the notification from the first server that responded with new mail (not necessarily the same account each time) is displayed seven times. Instead, one notification from each of the accounts should be shown in this situation. This is a MAJOR annoyance for people who have multiple email accounts.
Please ignore my last comment - it was intended for Thunderbird.
