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.
qa to olga. this was test on linux, not sure if win and mac have the same problem
Does not happen with mac os9.1, using build 4-7-2002 need to investigate more.
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.
