Should be something in Core/Mailnews. Is your patch for the MOZILLA_1_7_BRANCH? If so, there is no chance ever to get that in (only security fixes, no new features), please try to create a patch for the trunk (SM 1.5a) or MOZILLA_1_8_BRANCH (SM 1.1a).
Mstone has nothing to do with the Suite or SeaMonkey. It was filed here for lack of a better place, I assume.

Correct.  If there is a better place, I would be happy to refile it.  I found another (older) mstone bug here, so I figured that it would be acceptable.
Moving to Core and Trunk as per comment #2.
Marc, are you still willing to work on this bug? If you are, I suppose the first thing to do would be to bring the patch up-to-date with the current trunk source.

Tony, as far as I can tell, mstone is a product completely unrelated to mailnews. Following google, I see there is a sourceforge project at that has recent activity. If comment 2 is submitting a request for some feature in TB, it should be a separate bug.

I would recommend INVALID rather than Mailnews, unless someone can confirm that mstone is still an active project in Mozilla CVS.
In reply to comment #6:

OK, well who can say whether mstone is still active at Mozilla?

Myself, I have no knowledge whatsoever of Mozilla CVS: I don't build any Mozilla product, I download a few pre-compiled builds corresponding to my platform, I report the bugs that hit me, and since a little more than a fortnight I've been volunteering some of my time every day to do some triage, bring old but still open "Mozilla Suite" bugs out of oblivion, see what (if anything) to do with them.

Kent, if you know a better Product/Component, why not? If "mstone has nothing to do with the Suite" (comment #3) then I expect any connection it might have with Mozilla software would be through some backend (probably in Core, but there are others); but I might quite well be wrong.

OK I found it using a cvs log command. Bug 367398 moved mstone to sourceforge.
