To reproduce first get a current trunk build. Then create a news account, which requires authentication. Now save the username/password (maybe this is optional, the bug also seems to occour when not saving username/password), restart Mozilla and try to access this news account. Every action (expanding newsgroup tree, trying to read posting, get read count, etc.) brings up the error "A News (NNTP) error occured: Aborted by user". Maybe this Bug has the same cause as Bug 267461.
This bug here will be fixed as soon as Bug 267367 will be baked out on trunk and/or MailNews be fixed.
That patch has been backed out and so fixed this bug.

Looks like this bug is back in recent builds of Thunderbird. I can confirm that it happens in version 1.0RC1RC1 (20041130). Please reopen this bug and fix before the 1.0 release!
can anyone else confirm this is in the rc1 build?

Sorry, I forgot to include this link in my previous comment: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=174745
To confirm/reproduce this bug, simply create a news account in a recent Thunderbird branch build, such as 1.0RC1 (20041201). You must use a news server that requires authentication, such as newsgroups.bellsouth.net or news.supernews.com. (It doesn't matter whether or not you have an account on the news server, since this bug occurs prior to authentication.) Then try connecting to that account to download a list of newsgroups. You will likely get the error: "A News (NNTP) error occurred: Aborted by user".
yes, you're right...
