[RHEL4] NNTP account using news.panix.com not functional
Last modified: 2008-02-03 11:32:33 EST
Description of problem:
Setting up an NNTP account using news.panix.com does not work. It asks for a
password, but never gets beyond saying 'loading...' when you open the dropdown
for that account folder.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. New account wizard, receive mail from USENET news.
2. Use news.panix.com as the NNTP server
3. Personally, since I have an account there, I use my account name and password.
It never actually finishes connecting, and just says 'loading...'
It connects and lets you read news and connect to new groups and such.
Also does not work under FC4, and under RHEL4U2, it doesn't even ask for a
password for the account, so it is not a regression (but makes it difficult to
test to see if NNTP was not broken in the U3 errata).
Evolution 2.0.2 is only being updated for security issues. Closing as WONTFIX.
