For 1.1.8, I have downloaded for offline use all of the NG messages from That newsgroup has been shut down as of Oct 1 by

The problem is I can read the messages if I select "Work Offline" from
File. However, that sets all newsgroup to "Work Offline". Is there a way
to set just one newsgroup to "Work Offline" while leaving all the others
to "Work Online"? If there is, I can't find it in 1.1.18 or in 2.02b

Arnie, you have to set SeaMonkey to Offline or Online. So you can read
all the other groups whilst online, then select File|Offline|Download
sync now and the messages in your "shut down" group (if there are any)
will be downloaded for you to read.

A better option might be to set yourself up with another news server
that does carry your group (if it is still active!!).

Thanks. All of the O, newsgroups that were only handled on
Verizon news servers have been shut down. They aren't carried any where
else. It is no big deal because I only need to refer to these downloaded
messages occassionly.

Arnie, it's been a good while since I downloaded news groups to my hard
disk ( four or five of these mozilla groups that I stopped about
12-18mths ago). If I were downloading this group, all the messages would
be stored in a file called without any
extension. Do a (Windows) Find File/Folder search looking for the names
of the newsgroups your interested in. If nothing else, the file would be
readable (well, almost) in a word processor.



I'd just move the whole Verizon folder structure into Local Folders
(while SeaMonkey is shut down) So your folder pane becomes:

.->Local Folders->>(lots of verizon newsgroups)

Now they are all local folders, SeaMonkey never checks any news server.
Once you've verified this works, you can go into account settings and
delete the verizon news account.


Thanks for the response. Between your suggestion and Daniel's idea, I'm sure I'll get something to work.
