Can't see news messages when offline except with view source

Hi,

my ISP closed its news server, but I had the synchronization ON and previously 
downloaded all the messages.
The weird thing is I can't see them in the normal main window, I only can see 
their content with cmd-U (view message source).
Why does that happen and how to fix it?

My SM is:
User agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.14; rv:52.0) 
Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0 SeaMonkey/2.49.4
Build identifier: 20180711181801


Thanx!

Gabriel, when you attempt to view the messages that you have previously 
downloaded in the normal main window (and fail), is your SeaMonkey 
showing as being on-line?? (there's a little connectoid thingee down in 
the bottom-right of screen, indicating if you are on-line (closed) or 
off-line (separated))

If that connectiod thingee is showing you as on-line, when you select a 
message, SeaMonkey tries to get on-line and download the message ... and 
fails miserably! I don't know how your Cmd-U fits into this!!

Ahhhh OK :-)
I was always on-line.

That's why. So also the cmd-U "source" should fail, but it's not. This is why I 
didn't think about going offline :-(

Anyway now I removed that server, I'll try with another one to see if it has the 
same behaviour.

Thank you.
