when the messenger window is open in m12 i select "edit", "account settings". i see two different entries, each labelled "copies&folders". neither is a live menu item.
If you select the "copies and folders" item, do you not see anything in the right pane? Right now, you will see an > next to the "copies and folders" menu item. That shouldn't be there (subject of another bug) and may make you think that you can expand that item further. I'm not sure if that's what you're running into.
from email from email@example.com: + If you select the "copies and folders" item, do you not see anything in the + right pane? incorrect. i see in the right pane the contents of whichever menu item i previously selected. when i select, for instance, "server" i see what i expect in the right pane. when i then select "copies and folders" the right pane remains that of "server", and so forth for all the other active menu items. + + Right now, you will see an > next to the "copies and folders" menu item.

I'm not sure if that's what you're running into. + i see a triangle that looks like a down arrow next to all the menu items. i can click on that down arrow or double click on the menu item and the down arrow goes away. another double click brings it back, or a single click on where the arrow was. however nothing else happens relating to that down arrow, i can just make it go away and come back. same for all menu items on that screen, not specific to "copies and folders". i see no > next to "copies and folders".
I can't reproduce this on Linux, but this dialog is all XUL and JS so there shouldn't be any platform anomalies. Are there any error messages on the console that look related?
firstname.lastname@example.org, can you please look at the console and add any comments to the bug? I still cannot reproduce this problem, and I'd like to mark it WORKSFORME.
Build 1999122023 M12: NT4 Downloaded from the M12 link on the www.mozilla.org site. Using this windows build I am unable to reproduce the problem. I select the "server" item and the correct contents are displayed in the right pane. I select "Copies and Folders" and the contents change as expected in the right pane. Which M12 build are you using?
Yes, I'm quite sure that is the problem actually. :(
we're not supporing @ in usernames any time soon, unfortunately... I'm moving to m14 for now, probably will be
moving to M15. This might be a problem with supporting @, it might be a problem with the account manager. If it's the first case, I'm not fixing till M15. If it's the second case it doesn't matter because I'm moving the account manager into prefs right now
have a bug for the @ sign problem. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 12390 ***
