this bug is related to bug #8362 if the server sends back an error message, it will turn into an alert. for example, try posting to a non-existant news group. I've hooked up the basics (there is still more to do) of progress and status as well. when downloading articles, watch the progress bar and status area. there is more status / progress work to be done, and there are bugs, but this bug is fixed. marking fixed.

Refer to bug#6651, still wait for the messaging server 3.x is available for verifying this bug.
Lisa, can you tell me any other warning message that I need to verify? Otherwise, I am going to mark as verified based on the fixed for bug#8362.
Go ahead and verify for the warning in the other bug. I don't have a listing of all the errors that a news server can return. Actually, I do have one. Try to post to a newsgroup which is in a news server that's not your default news server. 1) From your Inbox, compose new message 2) Type in a name (for recipient) of a newsgroup that you have subscribed on a news server that is not your default. 3) Send 4) You should get an NNTP error back.

Based on Lisa for retesting on sending to nondefault/existing newsgroup: got an orror: "A News (NNTP) occured: 437 Unwanted newsgroup "[nondefault/nonexisting_newsgroup_name]" -> OK -> "Sending of message failed" displayed. Mark as Verified.
