Long e-mail account names

Post by clamshell » Thu Nov 20, 2008 4:08 pm

Is there some way of telling BirdieSync to synchronize e-mail between accounts with different names?

Here's my problem:
The e-mail account that I want to synchronize has a display name that looks like the following in thunderbird:

Code: Select all

notanemailad@reallyylonghostname.com
Pocket Outlook (Windows Mobile 6) won't let me use an account display name that is that long, so I just call it:

Code: Select all

reallyylonghostname.com.
Of course, BirdieSync won't let me synchronize that account in Thunderbird because it can't find an account by that name in Pocket Outlook.

I could change the account name in Thunderbird, but I'd prefer not to. :)

Hello,

I see the problem. By now the only workaround would be to rename your Thunderbird mail account name to a shorter name (it doesn't need to be the email address).

Sorry for the late reply.

I ended up doing that. However, it would still be a nice feature.
