If you replace that username with the whole email, and you can connect successfully to the account being edited, it should let you add the other account you are trying to add. Yes, that is the problem. Unfortunately, neither IMAP account will allow me to use my full email address as my username.

Seems odd that the Mail App would behave this way, since the two different accounts use different mail servers. Seems like the Mail App should be able to detect that and thus recognize that they are different accounts. Well, this works -- until I reboot my computer.

Both the new and old accounts seem to work, even when I close the Mail App and reopen it, but not when I reboot.
