pop server address.
Actual Results: Dialog box with the message: "Please enter a valid
Expected Results: Next page of the e-mail account creation wizard.
What hostname are you trying to use?
I am really sorry. I've tried this for months with different versions
(I've upgraded to 1.6 hoping this would go away) and always got this
error. 100% of the times I've tried.
I've just tried it today and it works!!! The only thing that changed
were updates to RHL 9 -- the version of Mozilla is the same.
You can close this one. My appologies.
OK. Marking WORKSFORME.
