Greetings from IBM: My development group (of people) has a login-protected newsgroup for beta (customer) feedback. The newsgroup works: I can access it via Outlook Express 5, but I feel so impure :-) How can I configure moz news to provide an account id and password? When I create a news account, I give email, server, and account (display) name, but the wizard never asks for account id and password. Thus, when I attempt to subscribe, I never even see the newsgroup in which I'm interested. Note that this is not an SSL issue: if I configure the account to use SSL, I get "... the connection was refused." As you're no doubt aware, I'm using Mozilla 1.0 (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020530) on win2k sp2. Save me from LookOut! Tom Roche <email@example.com>
Hello Tom - please see the info at http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=39862#c34 for how to enable this per-server through prefs.js. Currently, we don't have any UI for this, but there is a patch sitting in bug 94439. Tom, if the solution in bug 39862 doesn't work, please let me know, thanks. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 39862 ***
