This a dupe of Bug #268034 then?
I agree this is a duplicate. I'm quite disppointed by the support as long as see since how long and refered is the problem. This is a HUGE problem : I guess 98% of people experiencing it would just forget about thunderbird for quite long (and people having mutiple account for a provider shall be quite large...) . Only few like me and the others would bare hoping it is fixed. Then it is likely they would be discouraged that after testing several new releases and still finding the bug, making thunderbird unsusable. The worst is that it doesn't sound such a big issue to fix it (I'm a software engineer, but no, proposing patch for thunderbird is not my priority..., I have other mailer to use). *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 268034 ***

this was fixed a long time ago on the trunk. The fix is in 1.5, and has been in trunk nightly builds for a long time.
I've just download and tested with french version of release candidate 2 (note I'd like only to install a final release that works). And no it doesn't fix the problem : account 1, domain 1 : content of account 2, domain 1 account 2, domain 1 : empty account 1, domain 2 : content of account 2, domain 2 account 2, domain 2 : content of account 1, domain 2 I understand more why bug is still with status reopen. But I really wonder why nobody wants to fix it properly for so long.
