  211 - the NNTP response code for newsgroup selected ok
37385 - an estimate of the number of articles in the group


Which on many nntp servers will just be the difference between the high and low 
article numbers plus one. Some do better at counting, and some do better 
depending on which storage algorithm is used.



2 - the article number of the oldest post
37386 - the article number of the youngest post

That's all the info that's available from the server.  Servers don't do
much to make sure the estimate is right;  if you've been downloading
messages from the start, your 37227 is probably much closer to correct.

Right.  :-)

My mozilla.support.seamonkey newsgroup only contains 37,371 messages at this 
time!

The only saving grace is, you will be given the opportunity to choose to 
download only the top 20, 50, 100 of all those messages, if you want.

I think the default is 100 messages, but you can change it to whatever you want.

Good luck!

Mr. Whaley
I am subscribed to mozilla.suport.seamonkey on the news.mozilla.org
server, and my SM 1.1.14 reports 37227 articles in the newsgroup.
I.e. there is a discrepancy of 37371 - 37227 = 144 articles.
So where, what news server, are you subscribed at?
And to the GURUS :-)
Please explain the probable causes of the article count.

No. They may have been thinking of the Mozilla Application Suite no 
longer being maintained by the Mozilla Foundation, which was codenamed 
seamonkey (note the small 'm').
See 
http://blog.lizardwrangler.com/2005/03/10/community-transition-plan-for-seamonkey/. 



Ahhh! so that's why it's now Sea_M_onkey rather then Seamonkey!!
