User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; MyIE2; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)
Build Identifier: Thunderbird version 0.8 (20040913)

I migrated from Mozilla 1.7.3.  Within Moz, I have 7 email accounts.  Each one 
is set to use a different Outgoing Server / User Name configuration.  When I 
migrated from Moz 1.7.3 to TB 0.8 (20040913), NONE of my SMTP configurations 
came with me; all I was given was the default SMTP "smtp.netscape.net".  No 
good:  pre-existing outgoing SMTP server configurations should migrate with 
everything else.  It is a royal pain to re-create each outgoing SMTP server 
configuration within the Account Manager.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. TB:  Tools / Account Settings / Outgoing Server (SMTP) / Advanced

Expected Results:  
Pre-existing outgoing SMTP server configurations should migrate with everything 
else when installing Thunderbird 0.8.
