if you create a newsserver like and subscribe to a newsgroup
and then in the account manager, change the newsgroup server from to fx and then mozilla is checking for
new messages on the news server you get a alert saying:
"groups netscape.public.mozilla.dom was not found on"
while it's actually on

sorry for the spam.  making bugzilla reflect reality as I'm not working on these bugs.  filter on FOOBARCHEESE to remove these in bulk.

The dialog needs to be updated to use RealHostName instead of HostName.

Looks like it needs to be changed here:

I have tried to make the change and tested it on "". It seems to work fine.

Looks ok to me. I'm not a reviewer for this code though, so redirecting the review to Joshua.
