User-Agent: Build Identifier: Thunderbird 0.5 the username and password i use for netnews has nothing to do with the username where i get email. there appears to be no way to specify the username/password for the news server distinct from the email address that has to appear in the news articles. the connection credentials for news servers should be unique per server and not inherently connected to the identity. i don't understand is how it could be this broken. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. set identity to email address to correct value which is INCORRECT for news server 2. DON'T set NNTP username since there's no no way to do it 3. try to read news Actual Results: nothing happens Expected Results: it should provide a way to specify NNTP credentials distinct from email credentials
kicking up to all since this isn't a Mac specific issue. Sorry for the spam :(
Maybe a dupe of bug 228593?
Mike - using Tb 1.0 Create new news account Type in my name/email address Type in server address Type in name for account Then when accessing the server, I am prompted for username/password, which are completely different from those for my email. Can you still reproduce this in Tb 1.0? If so, where does your problem occur in steps outlined above?
