It's useful to click on a news server in the Folders pane and hit Ctrl-T to check for messages, because it checks all the newsgroups subscribed on that server, rather than just the currently selected one. The next natural thing to do is to hit N to read the first unread message on that server, but this doesn't work. Nothing happens; you just stay focussed on the server line. I'm using Thunderbird (build 20040214) these days, but I'm pretty sure this happened in Seamonkey too the last time I used it (I'm never quite sure which Product to report these kinds of things on, these days). A reasonably minor annoyance, since you can just click on the first group with unread messages and then hit N, but it would be nice to have it fixed.
Probably a dupe of Bug 166342 ?
thunderbird works this way also - 'N' is not enabled at account level for mail or news, regardless of ctrl-T by design?

(In reply to comment #2) > by design? Yes, although I always wondered why. I'm all for dropping this limitation.
For whatever reason, this seems to work on current builds.
