Using build 200204011 branch, (note also in trunk build on 3-29) you will fail
to send if: You have started a forward msg while in a newsgroup, switched to
your mail account (in my case it was a logged in IMAP account) to read a few
messages, then bring the in progress forwarding msg to the front and click Send.
 The error is "Sending Failed.  Please verify you Mail & Newsgroup Account
settings are correct".  Note this worked in 6.2.2, not sure when it broke

1. Launch mail
2. Log into your mail account, then go to a newsgroup and select a message
3. Click Forward, add email address 
4. Switch to your mail account and read a message.
5. Bring up the in progress forwarding message and click Send
Result: Error sending 
Expected: the message to send.

Workaround, switch back to your news account and click Send, now it Sends.

This may be related to bug 146145.  As reported in bug 146145, I am getting this
same error message on a fairly regular basis when I try to respond to an
existing newsgroup post using build 2002072508 on SuSE 8.0.
