When Local Folders level is selected, and you display the Account Central page,
if you click on "Read Messages," nothing happens. I know that nothing should,
since there is no inbox, but what do we tell the user?
Good point, this is something we can remove by just changing the JavaScript
calls (most likely in msgAccountCentral.js) to not include the <!ENTITY readMsgs
(we've got links and suffixes.)  Re-assigning to Bhuvan.

both local folder and news should not have "read messages", as neither have a
well know folder (or newsgroup) to load (like Inbox).

I think we can use the canGetMessages property on the server (or protocol info)
to determine this.
Looks like we've got code already that does this:
(found in msgAccountManager.js)

// Get the account type
        msgBundle      =
srGetStrBundle("chrome://messenger/locale/messenger.properties");
        selectedServer = GetSelectedServer(); 
        var serverType = selectedServer.type; 
        if (serverType == "nntp")
            acctType = msgBundle.GetStringFromName("newsAcctType");
        else
            acctType = msgBundle.GetStringFromName("mailAcctType");

How to implement that is beyond me though ;-)

In build 2001092403 on Windows 95 I do not see the "Read Messages" or "Compose a
New Message" links on the Account Central page for Local Folders.

So it appears this has already been fixed, eh?
