User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/2008072820 Firefox/3.0.1 Build Identifier: version 184.108.40.206 (20080724) Binary package hint: thunderbird Ubuntu 8.04.1 AMD64 TB version 220.127.116.11 (20080724) I am using a somewhat unusual setup I have 4 email accounts defined, 1 is a POP account, one is gmail, 2 are different IMAP mailboxes on the same server, called mailboxA and mailboxB from now on. mailboxA actually covers 3 different email addresses via aliases on the mail server side and different identities in TB. mailboxB is straighforward in this. mailboxA and mailboxB also use 2 different ldap accounts on the same ldap server (same box as the imap server), so both are configured to "use a different LDAP server". What happens is that whenever I change identity to send email from a different account or identity I get asked the LDAP password twice, clearly for both of these accounts (they do have different passwords) and no amount of saving it in password manager changes that. IMO the managing of different identities is flakey and why on earth does it ask me for the LDAP password for mailboxB's LDAP account when I am using one of mailboxA's identities? And vice versa?

moving to security ... not sure if thats right. confirming as we have at least two reports aobut this issue in ubuntu. Maybe your sent mail always goes to a different account and hence tbird needs to authenticate against that too?

I am actually pretty sure that it is the account manager as I also have the problem that my settings for "display html/text" do not carry over to the other identities, once I changed them again in the primary identity.
seems like this should be in ldap or security - not sure which
