User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.0.2) Gecko/20030208 Netscape/7.02 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.0.2) Gecko/20030208 Netscape/7.02 I have half a dozen email addresses (and I'm think I'm not alone), and all my emails have the same username: fcassia. So I'm email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and so on. The "new email notification tooltip" pops up and says: "fcassia has 1 new email". The question is obvious, WHICH fcassia email account has new email?. It should say: "email@example.com has 1 new email" or "firstname.lastname@example.org has new email" To be safe for "email@example.com" not fitting the tooltip space, perhaps it could be cut at a max lenght so it says: --------------------------- you@extremellylong(...) has new email. --------------------------- Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create two or three email accounts with the same username, but different domains. 2. Send email to account #2 3. Watch for the new-email notification tooltip to display saying "username has 1 new email". 4. Try to figure out (without opening up the email client) what account the message refers to. :) Actual Results: "username" has 1 new email. Expected Results: "username@host" has 1 new email.
Fernando Cassia, this is not an exact duplicate of what you want, but see bug 133960 -- if what is discussed there is close enough, please mark this bug as a duplicate of that.
Severity: normal → enhancement
Bug 133960 will use a smaller notification string - and it won't be the email-address if you change the account name (email address is the default account name). Because of bug 133960 comment 16, I'm duping this againt bug 133960 for the moment - reopen if you don't agree. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 133960 ***
