I am running Mozilla 1.1 Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; FreeBSD i386; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20021015 and configured mozilla to work with two different news servers. Everything was fine until the update to mozilla 1.1. Posting to any newsgroup - independend of the server fails with the message: Sending of message failed. Please verify that your Mail & Newsgroup are corrent and try again. This happens always when I try to post a message. BTW, mail works...
Your build is 8 days old. Could you please try with a nightly trunk build (we had a few smoketest blockers today, as well, so respins are on their way). See ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/ (but they won't be available for at least another couple of hours). Thanks for reporting bugs and using Mozilla.
Mozilla 1.1 and and build ID 20021015 ? Reporter: Do you compiled it yourself or have you downlaoded the binary from mozilla.org ?
Severity: blocker → major
I installed it from the FreeBSD ports collection (local build).
So you're up to the tip, so to speak? Current with the trunk?
No, the port fetched its source file from http://download.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/releases/mozilla1.1/src/.
Today I installed Mozilla 1.2b Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; FreeBSD i386; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021030 and the problem vanished....
Well, nothing has changed in the news posting code since then, but perhaps something has in the compose window code. Since I can't point to a specific checkin, I'm marking this worksforme. Thank you for responding back.
