Description

Build 2000-04-14-11M16: Mac 8.5.1

Overview: When creating an account use a "space" for a Server Name. After the 
account is created, go get messages and no messages/errors appear. This problem 
is only on the Mac. It leaves the user in a confusing state.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open the Account Wizard to create an account
2. Progress through the Wizard until you reach the Server dialog
3. For a Server Name just press the space bar and select Next
4. Continue through the Wizard until the account is created
5. Go to the folder pane and select the Inbox to get messages

Actual Results: The Status Bar states "Document Done" with the horizontal 
scrollbar moving continuously. I can switch to another account and read messages 
so it's still useable but it gives no information.

Expected Results: It should show a message stating that it is not able to 
connect to the server. 

Additional Information
-Win: OK, displays the warning.
-Linux: OK, displays the warning.

Reassigning to alecf. Seems like there might be a problem with creating this 
name on the Mac.

- In Account Wizard if I try to leave the server name blank then it prompts to
enter some text.
- I entered some random text for the server name and progressed through the
wizard. When trying to login to the server it reports "Connection refused to the
server" so this is better.

We should probably mark this as Worksforme.
