I have two POP accounts on the same server. When I check email on the first, I get prompted for a password. When I then check mail on the second server, I do not get prompted for a password. Instead, Mozilla sends the password for the first account. To reproduce: 1. Set up two pop accounts on the same server, different user IDs, different passwords 2. Download messages from the first one 3. Download messages from the second Actual result: Mozilla sends same password for both accounts Expected result: Mozilla should prompt for password per ACCOUNT, not per SERVER. Linux build 2000.02.06.09
Just noticed: when I Get Msg on the second account first, I get prompted for "Enter password for account1@server".
Reassign to sspitzer, cc jefft and morse. Guys, is this a side effect of the "stripped vs. unstripped" API for single sign on?
No, I don't think this has anything to do with the stripped versus unstripped API. But I would like a little clarification from the reporter. 1. Have you previously told single-signon to save any of your mail passwords (i.e., had the checkbox checked when you entered your password)? You can verify this by using the signon viewer. 2. You said that when you check email on the first server, you are getting prompted for a password. Is that prompt asking for your e-mail password or for the master password to unlock the data base. If the latter, then this is normal -- you unlock the database once and then the different passwords for the two accounts are sent transparently to the server each time you switch from one account to the other. 3. You didn't specify whether you were able to get messages from the second account even though you weren't asked for a password prompt. If you indeed were able to get the messages, then this would confirm that single signon transparently sent the correct password for each account.
yes, I think this is a side effect of something I did. accepting.
moving to m15
Answers to morse's questions: 1. yes. however, the problems also occur when I turn single signon off. 2. email password 3. I was not able to retrieve messages from the server for the second user. Instead, got an invalid password warning and another password dialog.

would like to confirm this bug is reproducable in freebsd, linux, and win32.
Putting on [nsbeta2+] radar.

working on this now, just got two pop accounts on mail.subdimension.com
ok, I can reproduce. debugging / working on a fix now.
fix in hand, seeking review from mscott. I'll attach the patch here.
Created attachment 9052 [details] [diff] [review] fix for this bug. pop url needs to have the username in it.
fix has been reviewed by mscott. will check in when the tree opens.
When verifying check all platforms, this happens on win98 and mac too on the 5-23 builds.
Using build 2000-05-24 on linux this is fixed. I also tested this by Canceling the password of the 2nd pop account to see if it would still get msgs and by typing in a bogus password. All worked as it should. Waiting for mac and win32 builds to verify on other platforms.
nice job seth, people report this bug ALL the time as you can see by the dupes
thanks, I feel bad I had this sitting in my bug list so long, and the fix was so easy. the "mostfreq" keyword is a big help.
Ninoschka verified this on win nt4.0 and I have verfied this as fixed on Mac using builds 2000-05-24. Note: I was able to reproduce this with 2 pop accounts with different ID's, on the same server and that had the same password (our test accounts) so we tested this with those accounts. Having the same password is the only thing that was different from the scenario, but since I was able to reproduce with my setup I figured it's OK to test with. If anyone has an issue with that, please comment in bug and I will find accounts with different passwords. Verified
