Ability to set SMTP and IMAP or POP password as the same when in the same domain
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030827 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030827 I use my work SMTP server to send e-mail where-ever I connect to the internet. That means I supply a username / password to send my mail - which I don't want to save as it is also my network login password. So, when I open up Mail, I supply my password for our IMAP server, then have to supply it again when I send mail. It would be nice if I could tell Mozilla that the two have the same password as they are in the same domain: smtp.soton.ac.uk and imap.soton.ac.uk Would it be possible to have an option "Use same password for each machine in same domain", or something like that? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.

taking. We were thinking of doing this if the host name was exactly the same, but that wouldn't help you...We'll probably make this controlled by a pref that's initially turned off
Assignee: sspitzer → bienvenu
Here's what I'm currently thinking: We have two global prefs: smtp.usePasswordFromIdenticalHost, smtp.usePasswordFromSameDomain and a per smtp server pref, smtp.server.serverx.usePasswordFromAccount where the account value would be account key. usePasswordFromIdenticalHost would interate over the incoming servers for one with the same host name, and if it had a password use it. UsePasswordFromSameDomain would iterate over the incoming servers for one with the same domain name (everything after the first '.', so smtp.foo.com would match mail.foo.com) The Per server pref would look for the account with the same account key and use the password stored in the server, if any.
Sounds pretty much spot on. Thanks

Here are the exact prefs: +// if true, we'll use the password from an incoming server with +// matching username and domain +user_pref("mail.smtp.useMatchingDomainServer", false); + +// if true, we'll use the password from an incoming server with +// matching username and host name +user_pref("mail.smtp.useMatchingHostNameServer", false); mail.smtpserver.smtp1.incomingAccount, "server1"); where server1 is the incoming account you want to match (pop3 or imap)
Scott pointed out that I used user_pref instead of pref - this fixes that.
