User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS sun4u; en-GB; rv:1.5a) Gecko/20030723
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS sun4u; en-GB; rv:1.5a) Gecko/20030723

UI spec: http://www.mozilla.org/mailnews/specs/offline/#Select

In the UI spec for the "Select Items" dialogue, there is a provision for
selecting an entire account - a very useful feature if you have a complex
hierachy of mail folders, a large number of mail folders or both and wish to
have all your email available while offline.

From Bug #79186 :

1.  From mail window: Edit|Mail/News Account Settings|<account name>|Offline &
Disk Space panel. 
2.  Click Select button which takes you to the select items dialog.  Note you
are not able to select an account level; there is no checkbox provided.  Must
select all the folders individually.

The reason for opening a new bug is that this is assigned to people who are no
longer in Mozilla development, so the previous bug is stale.

David Bienvenu has said this shouldn't be very difficult to implement:

"That part of the spec was never implemented, as far as I know. So you have to
choose each one by hand. It probably wouldn't be too hard to implement this. I
don't know if there's a bug on this, but if not, you could file a new one.     
                               

- David"

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Mail & Newsgroups
2. Go to Edit->Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings
3. Go to Offline & Disk Space under a mail account
4. Click "Select"
Actual Results:  
No checkbox available next to the account name

Expected Results:  
Have a checkbox next to the account name, which would enable you to click on it
to  select every mail folder in that account for offline use, and when you
uncheck it, it would uncheck every mail folder.

When someone decides to work on this, he can just reassign the bug to him/her.

There a lots of bugs in bugzilla with inactive email addresses. I don't think it
would be a good idea to start filing new bugs for all of these.
