I found an issue that I wasn't aware of with Thunderbird.

If I create two news accounts with the same ip address, but different ports, Thunderbird won't let me do it. It says I already have an account with that 'name'.

I didn't give them the same name, just used the same ip address.

I haven't tried much yet to work around it, but so far I find it a bit irritating.
