It would be interesting to access to html mboxes to see if there are waiting e-mails in the remote Incoming folder. This can be reached only if a user/password is sent to the main html page of the site. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Edit/Preferences/Mail & Newsgroups/"Mail start page" Here should be user and password input fields for the webpage indicated in the "Location" field.
Andreas: It's not clear precisely what you want (though I can narrow it down to a couple of things). Please list a step by step procedure to duplicate it. For example: 1. Mail/News start page | mail.domain.com/username 2. Close, open Mail/News Expected Results: logs me in Actual Results: ???? Also, Have you tried password manager? OS -> All
Guanxi: I see three uses for the "mail-start-page", to show: a. if new e-mails have been received in an HTML only accessible e-mail service (no HTML access e-mail services can be actually handled by Mozilla's MUA!) b. a mail statistics web page (e.g. for administration purposes) c. whatever web page ones' need (as bugzilla's one) At least for a. and b. an authentication has to be processed requiring some support from the MUA (read Mozilla) to get login. So far no user/password can be specified into the Preferences (Edit/Preferences/Mail & Newsgroups/"Mail start page") and passed to the target HTML page no login can happen unless typing in by hand. Maybe the password manager can handle this in some way but it can't know what user has to be applied in a multi accounts configurated Mozilla MUA. I suggest to make the mail start-page more usefull adding the capability to enable an automatic login to "Mail start page" address with username/password (selected from the Preferences panel of the actual active account in Mozilla) to such kind of services. I have attempted with e.g. username:firstname.lastname@example.org (in the "Mail start page" field) but this didn't perform the job so no login succeded (at startup of the MUA). OK? :-) Andreas
