Thanks to everyone who responded to my original question.
I have to agree with Peter that switching profiles in TB seems like the
cleanest solution for now.
I'll watch bug #0001029 and if there is any way in which testing a
change to this can help, let me know and count me in. ;-)

 Anyway, my setup:
 
 - SOGo 1.3.12c on CentOS 5.8 - Thunderbird 10.0.2 on either Mac or
 Windows - Lightning 1.2.3 - SOGo Connector 10.0
 
 The scenario:
 
 Imagine one of two possible scenarios: The same person / user wants
 to use more than one account on a given SOGo instance. Either because
 
 
 A) the server hosts multiple domains via one FQDN to access SOGo and
 the user in question has accounts for more than one such domain, or 
 B) A server hosts only one domain, but the user needs access to two
 accounts on the same domain.
 
 The problem:
 
 The way the current setup works, it seems impossible to make TB do
 that, because it will 'remember' only one(!) username/password combo
 per host used, effectively blocking access to a second account on the
 same host but with different credentials.
 
 Has anyone found a solution for this problem? Is this a limitation in
 the Connector or in Thunderbird?
 

Yes, this is a known limitation in Connector and in Integrator.
And yes, this is Bug #1029.

And there is no known work around for this.


Kind regards,
Christian Mack

Well, with a bug filed I guess we can sooner or later expect a fix.
Good to know that the last scenario isn't working right now and even
better that it doesn't affect me at the moment. But it will.

Hi Martin!

You could do a nicer workaround and create two profiles in thunderbird, 
one for each Sogo user.


I think you can even run them simultaneously but i'm not sure now. This 
seems to me to be a bit cleaner than choosing the sogo account at 
login time.


Depends on your needs... Just a suggestion.

Regards,
Peter

I expect the username/password combo relates to the hostname of the sogo 
server. If you are not in VirtualHost hell (or rather, your sogo server 
is not *g*), you could use another hostname pointing to the same IP 
address, or just the literal IP address...?


I had a Thunderbird setup that way with Lightning for a while, no idea 
about Connector though. Worth a try?


Another way would be to grant the ID A access to ID B's address 
books / calendar and only ever connect as ID A

(That was what I did later).
