As the image behind the given URL shows, on the Server Settings pane of a mail account, the server address and the user name for the account cannot be changed. I experienced this to be a usability issue. When I added a new POP Account to MailNews, I missspelled both server name and user name. In order to correct this, I had to delete the account and recreate it from scratch. Is this wanted? I imagine it to be worse if had saved a bunch of messages under that account and would then need to change either the server name or the user name, due to changes on my providers side. Would the mail then be lost? I suggest to the developers to key the account settings somehow different, so that user name and server can be changed whenever needed. I saw that local mail is stored in a folder named after the server name. I would consider this a design issue. Picking an artificial, unambigious and unique key for the folder would eliminate the need to keep the server name for the account fixed (if that's the reason). Thanks a lot! Marian
