I recently purchased a domain for not having anymore e-mail problems so i can
redirect lots of addresses to a single account, the problem comes when i want to
create the second e-mail account with the same e-mail incoming/outgoing server,
Mozilla and Thunderbird never let me do this cause the server name is the same.
For me this feature is really important and  by now, i have to keep on working
with Outlook, a program with i don't feel safe. 
I know i could use the profiles (anyway, those accounts belong to me, that
means, my profile) but believe me, when you have 10 or 15 accounts, working with
10 or 15 profiles could make you go crazy.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create an account with (no problem)
2.Try to create a second account with (Mozilla and Thunderbird
won't let you)

Actual Results:  
I cannot have multiples accounts with the same server and is really boring
working with the profiles system.

Expected Results:  
Let me create those multiples accounts instead of make me work with the profiles.

i had to create the 2nd outgoing server manually).
