Using builds 2000-02-15-10 on win98 and linux and 2000-02-15-09 on Mac the From: addressing field is not expanded horizonally and populated when user has selected the 1st account of a profile that contains 2 or more accounts. 1. Launch Messenger (with a profile that has 2 mail accounts) 2. Select the Inbox of the 1st account (give password if needed) and click the New Msg button. Notice the From field is just a drop-down button. 3. Close New Msg window 4. Select the 2nd mail account (give password if necessary), click on the New Msg button. Notice the From field has the selected account as the From: Note: The outgoing server in this case was the same as the 1st account server.

As reported in the bug I just duplicated: 1. The From line is not set, regardless of what account is selected, if you Reply, Reply All, or Forward. 2. The message is not sent, and no error message is displayed. That makes this bug pretty bad, since it means messages are getting lost. Marking dogfood.

Sorry, I take that back. Message did get sent. It just took a long time for the messages to arrive.

cc'ing rods as it's a problem with dropdown list
Status: NEW → ASSIGNED
I've just checked that I was correctly setting the From select element with the correct items, there are ok. If I add an extrat dummy item (option) at the beginning of the select element, then everything is works fine. Looks like it's a problem when you set the select.value to the first item.

The only problem I am seeing (other than the crash when I tried to get my home e-mail from my pop account) is the combobox doesn't show the correct value for my work imail account in the "From" field (the first account), in fact it is only a few pixels wider tthan the dropdown btn. When I switch to the second account and hit new message the "From" field lokks perfect. I'll take a look at why the combobox is displaying any value even though there are at least two in the list.

For some reason the comboxbox isn't getting reflowed because block reflow doesn't think it is dirty and needs to be reflowed. Should be easy to fix, but I need to consult with buster.
Ok, so it wasn't easy. I have had to rework Combobox reflow, which it really needed, and I am still testing. I get a warning out of reflow that I need to get rid of.

This bug, as originally stated, was specific about the From: not being expanded for a NEW MSG on the 1st account only, (Reply, Reply To: or Forward msg was not part of this bug, the short description had been changed to include Reply). As "rods" pointed out in his comment dated 2-17-2000 he is only seeing the problem in the 1st account when doing a NEW MSG. The behavior is different when user is doing a Reply, Reply To or Forward (the From doesn't expand no matter which account you have selected a message in and is what duplicate bug 27649 states). Two bugs have been combined to one. "rods" if this should be 2 different bugs, please let me know and I will separate them. If not, QA Note this should be tested to include New Msg, Reply, Reply To and Forward.

The new rewrite of combobox reflow provides a 3x improvement in CPU time usage for laying out pages with several controls.
Whiteboard: [PDT+] Making good progress, one more issue to work out → [PDT+] 90% there, currently have a printing issue to work
If you want a separate bug for the case of Reply and Forward, you can reopen bug 27649.
Need ETA on fix for this in Status Whiteboard please.
Still testing the rewrite
Whiteboard: [PDT+] 90% there, currently have a printing issue to work → [PDT+] fix 2/28
This looks like it's working for me on Linux build 2000.02.025.08; maybe fixed along with bug 28460?
This got fixed by a box layout fix, but I have rewritten the reflow for the combobox for performance.
Should we close this bug then?
Using build 2000-02-28-09 on Win98 and 2000-02-28-08 on Mac, New Msg, Reply, Reply All, Forward all populate the From field with the selected account. Tested with 2 accounts, each one selected as I ran through the various Compose windows. Note: Linux testing done by zach, Rod please Resolve this as fixed and I will verify.
No, I don't want to close it until I get the new code checked in.
Whiteboard: [PDT+] fix 2/28 → [PDT+] fix 3/1
