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.

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.

Today I found a weird 'problem' concerning SOGo and Thunderbird
Connector. I am unsure if this is something I should rather ask on
the Thunderbird list? If so, please let me know. Also, I don't know
for sure bug #0001029 is about the same thing or related?

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
