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?

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?
