Version: (using KDE KDE 3.5.2)
Installed from: SuSE RPMs
The two dialog windows in "Account", namely "Sending" and "Receiving", should follow a similar layout. Up to now, it is a bit confusing.
For example, the order of fields in the receiving windows is as follows:
Name, login, password, host, port
In sending, it is:
Name, host, port, precommand
Maybe receiving should be changed to:
Name, host, port, login, password
Moreover, the security tabs in the receiving and sending windows are different although the contents is exactly the same. In receiving, "Check what the server supports" is at the top, while in sending it is at the bottom. IMHO this button should be moved to the bottom in both dialog windows.

This would be a good junior job.
Currently, the account settings dialogs are hardcoded, it would be nice to extract them to a .ui file. Then, it is much easier to rearrange the UI widgets so that the dialogs look more similar to each other.
Note that in KDE4, the situation is even worse, as the SMTP dialog now comes from a separate library and is very different from the POP3/IMAP ones.
Fixing this should be doable for beginners, therefore I marked it as a JJ.

SVN commit 820430 by tnyblom:
Moved the "Check what server supports" button to below the options.
Reordered the "Account Name", "Host", ... fields.
Now the pop/imap dialogs look more like the SMTP one and have a more
natural order (atleast I think so)
M +76 -75 imapsettings.ui
M +71 -70 popsettings.ui
