your article about multiple identities in Thunderbird encouraged me to ask my question. Since you are well versed about this Thunderbird 3.1 subject I need some further help.
I created my spouses primary email account as “email@example.com”. Since I want for TBird to work for her just as her old Outlook Express program worked, I created an identity under her primary account as “firstname.lastname@example.org”. One account on Comcast is for her private email, the 2nd is for her professional mail – note that comcast.net is our ISP for both ‘accounts’. When she logs into either ‘account’ on comcast.net she sees email ready to be downloaded and brought into TBird. When she brings up TBird however, only mail for her TBird (personal) account comes down. The mail for her Identity under that account doesn’t.
What have I missed or messed up in building her Account/Identity relationship in TBird that prevents all email from both ‘accounts’ on comcast.net to be downloaded into TBird?
Thanks in advance for your help. I really look forward to your reply!
