Two email addresses, and is forwarded to
ISP is a DSL supplier,
User wants to maintain two seperate email accounts in Mozilla, one for each
email address.

Problem: When trying to set up, after having set up (incoming, outgoing refuses the set up because the user names are the
same..even though email addresses are different. User names must be the same
because income mail is at same location, 

Email addresses could be changed-but whos going to change bus. cards and
stationary for the browser.
Browser should accept same usernames when email addresses are different.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.set up one account with user name xyz, incoming server,
outgoing server
2.try setting up second email account with different address but same user name
(since both accounts come to same incoming server)


Actual Results:  
Mozilla refuses second email account set up with this message:
" An account with that user name already exists. Please enter a different user name"

Expected Results:  
I expected to be able to have two email accounts set up...
I have set this up in Opera and it works just fine.

Without being able to set up two accounts with the same username but different
emaiol addresses..I will NOT be able to use Mozilla.
