Cannot retreive files from articles downloaded to be available offline Downloaded newsgroups to be available offline - embedded wave files were encoded in the .msf file but the news reader wouldn't produce them - and of course when online if I tried to access these articles, I received an error regarding the fact that they were expired. Expired articles saved offline - perhaps an error should *NOT* display anyway?
Confirmed using commercial trunk builds: 2001090408 on nt 4.0, linux 2.2 2001090409 on mac os 10.0 If you download a newsgroup for offline use, go offline, then try to do this for any message with an attachment: -double click -right click on attachment -Open -Save as -From Messenger Menu: File|Attachments|<file>|Open, save, save all It will not work. Instead you will see an error message that says "Unable to save the attachment.Please Check your file name and try again" if trying to any type of save. If you do a "open" nothing happens. Tried newsgroups messages with different types of attachments: wav,vcf, txt,html, etc.. and nothing worked.
