thunderbird email import places email profiles(including mail, etc) in wrong accounts where domain names are the same
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040910 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040910 I am currently using Mozilla (version listed above) as my primary email client. I downloaded and installed Thunderbird version 1.0 (20041206). During the installation it gave me the option to import Netscape/Mozilla 1.x, which I selected. It appeared to import email and all just fine. I have the following four email accounts: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. When I opened up Thunderbird, I discovered the following: email for firstname.lastname@example.org was imported into the account for email@example.com email for firstname.lastname@example.org was imported into the account for email@example.com email for firstname.lastname@example.org was imported into the account for email@example.com Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. have more than one email account with the same domain in separate accounts in Mozilla email 2. install Thunderbird and allow it to import Netscape/Mozilla 1.x email 3. Uninstall Thunderbird 4. In c:\Documents and Settings\-current user-\Application Data delete the Thunderbird entry (as the uninstall procedure does not delete this as it should) 5. Repeat steps 1 and 2 Actual Results: Email for email accounts with the same domain are all entered into the wrong email accounts... consistantly the same as I described in the Details section. Expected Results: imported the email as follows: firstname.lastname@example.org email from Mozilla email into email@example.com email account in Thunderbird firstname.lastname@example.org email into northreno@frednorth email account in Thunderbird. email@example.com email into doctorgeek@frednorth email account in Thunderbird.
