If you then click on a new message after this time, Thunderbird will ask a user/pass again, eventhough I saved the user/pass the first time round. clicking the collapse/expand thingy for the newsserver will re-connect. New messages can be read without problems. The message that asked for a user/pass because the connection was lost will still ask for a user/pass. Entering the same as before will allow one to read the message. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
Is it same as Bug 214533? > Mozilla asks for news server authentication information although stored in the password manager Or is it similar problem to Bug 160425 of POP3? > Forgets previously saved password if mail server unavailable
Reporter, can you please try reproduce this error on a newer build?
I'll be able to try after the 24th of october.
(In reply to comment #1) > Is it same as Bug 214533? > > Mozilla asks for news server authentication information although stored in the > password manager Yes, it's very similar, but unlike 214533 it's not solved, since I still have this type or bug in the Dutch version of Thunderbird 220.127.116.11 (20060719). It's always triggered by the news server reporting that I'm using too many connections.
This should be fixed in 2.0 alpha and 18.104.22.168 builds *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 286628 ***
