From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020530 BuildID: 2002053012 When using Mozilla Mail with more than one mail account, second, third and so on mail accounts folder configuration isn't working properly. Checking the file prefs.js everything seems to be recorded ok (comparing the first configured account with the other ones) but, using the front-end, the information isn't used. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create one mail account on Mozilla Mail and configure it (Edit -> Mail & Newsgroups account settings); 2. Check, on the same menu, if everything was recorded correctly; 3. Repeat step one and 2 with deleting the first account created; 4. "Copies & Folders" tag isn't recorded properly. Actual Results: "Copies & Folders" from the second and above accounts isn't recorded properly which doesn't allow the record of Drafts or Sent messages. Expected Results: Store and use all configuration information correctly.
Created attachment 91799 [details] Screenshot from the bug After configuring the account, even without closing Mozilla Mail, here's the result when backing to the menu option... It seems that nothing was recorded.
This problem can be fixed by deleting prefs.js and localstore.rdf created by previous versions of Mozilla/Netscape.

Is the second account the same as the first account? In other words, are you entering the same account information for both accounts?
Dear Ninoschka Baca, the accounts were different, with different servers, different usernames and different account names so there wasn't any mix of data. The problem was related with previous versions of Mozilla/Netscape. I had some troubles before configuring my accounts and importing my messages from Outlook Express (too many messages, I suppose) and these tries weren't deleted from localstore.rdf automatically. That's why the conflict occurred, because "server3" configuration stored in prefs.js was different from the one stored in localstore.rdf. I think this problem should be considered rare and not so relevant once it can be solved quite easily (just deleting or editing these two files). Just one question: it's possible to migrate from Windows Mozilla Mail to Linux Mozilla Mail? Best regards, Manuel Silva
