Thunderbird denied to send message to it. If you read any message on that group, it simpily crash. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. open news://news.hkfanzine.net/comp.BSD&DBMS (this is a chinese group.. but this doesn't matter.) 2. post a new article 3. it say no valid group "comp.BSD&DBMS" ---- alternative: 1. open news://news.hkfanzine.net/comp.BSD&DBMS 2. try to read any article on it. 3. see it crash. I don't sure if the NNTP spec allow the & sign in the groupname.. But at least, it should never crash. It have no problem fetching the header. When it try to fetch the body, it crash.. i have tried thunderbird 0.1 (20030723) and 20030813 ..
