Observed in 2001-07-06-09-trunk/ win nt 4.0 2001-07-06-08-trunk/ linux 2.2, red hat 7.0 2001-07-06-08-trunk/ mac os 9.0.4 Seeing strange behavior when it comes to using Get Selected Messages or Get Flagged Messages for newsgroups. For Get Flagged Messages: 1. Subscribe to a newsgroup (if not already) 2. get all the headers (better yet mark all messages as read) 3. Make sure you display the flag column in the thread pane 4. flag at least 3 messages 5. make sure you are not selecting any of the 3 flagged messages 6. go to File|Offline|Get Flagged messages 7. go offline 8. Click on each of the 3 flagged messages you downloaded Results: 1st flagged message is not downloaded. And what really is strange is that when it is done downloading flagged messages, the flag is removed. Sometimes all 3 flags are removed, other times only one or two of the flags are removed Expected results: 3 messages to be downloaded and all 3 to have their flags still present. Mail behaves this way. For Get Selected Messages: 1. Subscribe to a newsgroup (if not already) 2. get all the headers (better yet mark all messages as read) 3. select at least 3 messages 4. go to File|Offline|Get Selected messages 5. go offline 6. Click on each of the 3 selected messages you downloaded Results: 1st selected message is not downloaded, the others are. Expected results: 3 messages to be downloaded Not sure if this is a front end or back end issue.
it looks to me from testing like we're just skipping the first flagged or selected message and downloading the rest. Should not be hard to fix.
adding Navin and Seth for reviews. We were skipping the first message, so I used the existing firstTimeP parameter to know if we'd already figured out which message to download.

Commercial builds: 2001-08-15-09-trunk/ - nt 4.0 2001-08-15-14-trunk- linux 2.2, mac 9.0.4 verified flagging unread and read newsgroup messages results in those messages being downloaded. Note: the Flag dissapears after doing a "Get Flagged message". This isn't considered a bug I hope? If it is, I'll open a new bug, David. Marking as verified (both themes)
Status: RESOLVED → VERIFIED
no, that's the intended behaviour, the useage model being that you flag interesting messages as you read them online, then download them for offline, at which point you want to unflag them, so that when you go online and download messages again, you'll be starting with a clean slate.
