Build 2000-02-15-09M14: NT4 Build 2000-02-14-16M14: Linux 6.0 Build 2000-02-14-13M14: Mac 8.5.1 Overview: After adding a second Mail account, the Identity panel in Account Settings appears to be the same dialog as the "Mail Folders" where it states that its a special account. Steps to reproduce: 1. Use a profile that has one mail account 2. Use the Account Wizard to add a second mail account. 3. After selecting the "Finish" button on the Congratulations dialog the Account Settings window should appear. 4. Select the second mail account's Identity panel. Actual Results: Notice that the dialog looks like the "Mail Folders" dialog and it states - "The following is a special account. There are no identities associated with it." - It displays the Account Name correctly. - The Server panel looks ok. - The Copies panel look ok. - Click "OK" to close Account Settings, then open Account Settings and the Identity panel for the second account now looks correct. Additional Information: - This also happens if you add a News account.
Correction: When I refered to "Mail Folders" I meant "Local Folders".

this is really bad. Newly created accounts should not display this panel

Putting on PDT+ radar for beta1.
figured out what was going on, have the fix The problem was that NotifyServerLoaded was happening whenever an incoming server was created, independant of whether it was actually in an account... this meant that there were no identities associated with the account, so the datasource would tell the account manager to show the no-identities page. I changed it so that the notification happens when you attach it to an account, so that you can attach identities to the account before attaching the server, and then when the server is attached, THATs when the datasource would add the server to the account list, and it would have identities by then.
Whiteboard: [PDT+] → [PDT+] fix in hand
ok, fix is in.
