Thunderbird mail accounts???

Setting up Primary and secondary email accounts.
Got two different email users with different passwords from ISP
Got Primary account setup , but when setting up Second Account
Thunderbird will only allow you to use the Outgoing Primary User Name
and not Secondary user in the Outgoing mail.
This creates a problem for the primary user , If he wants to send a outgoing email from
his account he has to use both his password and secondary user password to send email.
What gives with Thunderbird, Has anyone had this problem ?

I didn't see it as so much of a problem. Thunderbird uses one server for outgoing mail, but it appears as though it was sent from whichever email you actually send it from.

So when you send an email to someone else, they'll see the address that you meant to send them, regardless of what authentication information you used.

If you want to change it, the option is under "Account Settings">>"Advanced"

It isn't a problem as having to use the same Smtp Server, the problem it is
forcing you to use the same User Name on the secondary account as used
on the primary account , for outgoing username.
