Multiple Identity Support in Mozilla Thunderbird

Mozilla Thunderbird 0.5 introduces a new feature, supporting multiple identities for an account. This is a powerful feature for users who have multiple email addresses that end up in the same mail account.

This way you dont have to create those dummy newsgroup or mail accounts just to get another identity.

Currently there's no UI for this feature so you have to manually edit the prefs.js file, which is located in your profile directory. Here's how to find your profile directory.

I'm not sure if this is also supported in Mozilla Application Suite. Does anybody know?

One of the new features of Mozilla Thunderbird 0.5 is 'multiple identities'. It allows you to associate more than one email address with an account, so that you can use one set of settings, but send and reply to email using more than one email address.
