Description

Mail UE Review Meeting, 7/13/00.  It was agreed that the first screen of the New 
Account Wizard should be modified as follows:

       (* ) ISP or Provider Email Account  (Default)
       (  ) America Online Email Account
       (  ) Netscape Web Mail Account
       (  ) Newsgroup Account

As you may know, resources to work on Activation in Netcenter are scarce - we 
are pushing hard to preserve the initial Activation sequence displayed in 
Seamonkey and to pass information regarding the existence of Netscape Web Mail 
accounts to Mail. We will not get  "downstream activation" - the ability for 
someone already using a profile in Seamonkey to invoke Activation to set up a 
new Netcenter account (including a new Netscape Web Mail account).

Originally - we had structured the first screen of the New Account wizard to 
provide 2 paths for email accounts - (1) get me a new (Netscape Web Mail) 
account, or (2) configure Seamonkey Mail for my existing AOL or other email 
account. Because of the lack of resources in Netcenter described above, the 
first path (new Netscape Web Mail account) is not going to happen. Therefore, 
our existing first screen of the New Account Wizard doesn't really make sense, 
since all email accounts will be "existing".

It should read as follows:

America Online email account
Netscape Web Mail account -- (since Netscape Web Mail a proper name)
Newsgroup account

Based on Sol's email, I was assuming it was out. Sol, can you verify?

Comment 6

Yes - Compuserve out. After repeated attempts, I was not able to reach them to 
confirm that they wanted to be in.

I think that this got a P1 in UE review, so I'll go back on the minus and plus 
this one. It lloks like this is critical to that first impression.
Removing - and addiing plus for beta3.

to PDT: this is a P1 based on all of our usability feedback from the UE team.  
Even though this is not data loss or a crash, users need to have it be made easy 
for them to create accounts and have the interface be intuitive.

Reopening

The order of the items is correct but the syntax doesn't match the attachment.
It currently displays:

- Existing Mail Account
- America Online
- Newsgroup Account

It should actually state:

- ISP or email provider
- AOL account (For example, jsmith@aol.com)
- Newsgroup account

Reopening because it doesn't match the spec. Did someone decide that the wording 
should be changed?

It now displays:

- ISP or Provider Email account
- America Online
- Newsgroup account

The spec states that it should state:

- ISP or email provider
- AOL account (For example, jsmith@aol.com)
- Newsgroup account

Resolution: FIXED → ---

oh crap, this was me. I took the wording from the top example, not the spec. 
That was dumb.
