Support URLs of type <news:msg-id>, like <news:3BE8FDB2.email@example.com>. (E.g., try to enter them in the urlbar of the browser, should then also work for Mailnews standalone msg windows.) We already support them for <news://server:port/msg-id>, e.g. <news://news.t-online.de/3BE8FDB2.firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Stephend, is this in the common RFCs or specs?
Dup of "URI-parser fails for news:3B48D5FC.email@example.com" *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 89939 ***

No dup. The other bug is about the parser only (which I assumed does work already). This bug is mainly to ensure that we select the right server (using bug 108876). Maybe, if all deps are resolved, nothing is left here, but then we should at least verify that it works. OTOH, there might need to be some glue code to make it work together. REOPENing.

What's the status of this bug ?
It still does not work. My suggestion for a solution while we wait on the dependencies is to use the servers in the order they are listed until we succeed. Later, if we have the dependencies solved we should: a) Retrieve from msg-store if available, else b) Retrieve from default server if available, else c) Retrieve from the other servers in the order they are listed as above. I suggest to move the target milestone from the past to whatever and get it going;-) pi
The support of very basic URLs is really needed. Requesting 1.3b blocking. pi
Updating summary per comment 5.
Summary: Support <news:msg-id> URLs → Select correct server for <news:msg-id> URLs
