New account creation window mock up

Because I’ve gotten quite a few complaints that account creation wizard is troublesome for some users I decided to change account creation drastically. si.Mail already has some sort of automatic account configuration, but I’ve decided to take it to the next level.

With current automatic account configuration you still have to go through entire wizard although that wouldn’t be necessary. At the moment there are some fields that could be auto configured but they are not.

Account creation mock up

As you can see at the mock up above in reality for auto configuration usually only first 3 fields are necessary and sometimes the 4th one, in cases where user name doesn’t equal any part of e-mail address (user name field would be hidden by default and would be displayed only if necessary). If there won’t be any data for auto configuration, user will automatically get the same window as if it would have clicked on Advanced settings.

So what is your opinion on this?

yes, it’s good idea for a rapid configuration account. Do you keep the Wizard anyway ?
