Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130

Frequently (but not always) I try to post to a NG and I write my text, spell
check it, press SEND and Netscape asks for EITHER a user ID <OR> a password and
then when I put in the password and click OK, I get an error message, "NNTP
Error" and the mail client closes and I lose my outgoing email.

The system should NOT ask for a user ID or password as I have earlier entered
same and so it should never ask again..  Also:  Why do I have to enter a new
password for EVERY NEWSGROUP with ver 1.3?  This is a large hassle.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.see above
2.
3.

Actual Results:  
News/mail client crashes and no notification is sent to Mozilla

Expected Results:  
Post to the newsgroup.
