I'm using SeaMonkey v1.1.18, and I have accounts setup for several
newsservers. The newsserver privatenews.microsoft.com has started
behaving strangely. Any time I click on one of the newsgroups to which I
have already subscribed on that server, I get the pop-up asking "Would
you like to subscribe to <newsgroup_name>?" After I click "yes" it shows
me all the messages, but all are marked as "unread", even though I have
previously marked all current messages as "read". This didn't used to
happen on this server, and it doesn't happen on any of the other servers
I use. Is this something I can correct with a setting change, or is it a
problem with the newsserver itself? Thanks!
It sounds like damaged files in your profile. I would try deleting the
server and all associated files and start over from the beginning, on
just that server. As it is, you're basically starting over every time
you access the newsgroups.
