Managing Newsgroups

Postby marcw » Thu Nov 27th, 2014 10:05am

Mailtraq Version:

Today, I was downloading messages for a newsgroup and I got a brief flash of an error message.

Then, I found there are several messages marked for download, but Agent doesn't seem able to download them.

I looked at Mailtraq, and it looks as though the messages are there - but there's nothing you can do, apparently, except look at the list; clicking on a message in the index doesn't open it or anything useful- neither can you delete it, apparently.

RIght clicking on the newgroup name and selecting "properties" just throws an error.

Module : D:\Mailtraq-bin\MailtraqSnapin.ocx
Version :
Class : EOleException
Message : Error calling "PropertiesValue" (80046007)
Timestamp : 2014-Nov-27 13:15:51

This also seems to mean it can't get any new news for this group.

In the end, I removed the group and added it again, and that seems to have kicked it into life properly. But I still can't reliably check on its properties without throwing an error.

Does this get any better in more recent releases?

I'm sure that in the old (pre-MMC) Mailtraq I could view and delete individual news postings.
