Re: Newsgroup not starting at top, and how to import old emails from OE

They screwed things up when they went from OE to WinMail.

Oops! Today I checked the same newsgroup, and the top was still not in the
list of headers. Yet when I looked, my post had about a dozen replies. It is
bug, although more of a gnat than a scorpion. Where's the DDT!

I found that it was selecting the first unread post, and in the
rec.pets.dogs.behavior newsgroup I had been reading almost everything, so
there were a lot of read posts at the top. As long as I know that there are
only read posts at the top, I suppose it is just as well to have it select
the first unread post. Other newsgroups did not display this behavior
because I only read a small percentage of posts.

"So it's a feature, not a bug!" :)

I have noticed that one newsgroup consistently shows the list of headers
starting several rows down from the top, while all others work correctly.
This is just a minor annoyance, but any ideas why this is happening and
how to correct it?

    ... First, they havent' fixed the bug that allows replies to posts older than 30 days (their rule, when they changed the interface some years back they put the bug in, yet later fixed it, but the last interface change the bug was back and they still haven't fixed it; this is another example of them treating the thing like their own groups, maybe it makes sense for a web forum (though I've seen the contrary) to allow posts to old messages, but it's only nonsense for Usenet). ...
