User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040616 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040616 I use the Spambayes sb_server.pl POP proxy to filter my mail. I have multiple POP accounts set up in Spambayes that operate on different ports (i.e. 1101, 1102, etc.) on the local machine (localhost). When I try to create more than one account in Mozilla Mail that uses "localhost" as the POP server I receive an error message that says "An account with that username and server name already exists. Please enter a different user name and/or server name." It just so happens that I have two different accounts from different ISPs that have the same user name. So I end up with Spambayes proxying the two accounts, and I need to create two accounts in Mozilla Mail to access them. One account is hooked up to localhost:1101, username: example_name, and the other needs to be hooked up to localhost:1102, username: example_name. Mozilla doesn't like this (and I can see why), but it prevents legitimate uses like the one described above. I worked around the problem by using 127.0.0.1 for the second account's server name, but this won't work a third time (just a guess, I haven't actually tried). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set up POP proxy on localhost (i.e. spambayes) 2. Configure proxy for two different accounts with the same username for each, for two different POP servers, on two different local ports (1101, 1102 for example) 3. Create Mozilla Mail POP account for first server, pointed to localhost:1101 4. Create Mozilla Mail POP account for second server, pointed to localhost:1102 with the same username as the first account. It will fail with an error message as described in "Details". Actual Results: Error message appeared. "An account with that user name and server name already exists. Please enter a different user name and/or server name." Expected Results: I should be allowed to create two POP accounts with the same username and server name as long as they are on different ports.
