Seamonkey

Is it appropriate to ask Seamonkey-related questions here?

If so, how do I import bookmarks from Firefox and email accounts from 
Thunderbird?

Thanks.

Better asked in user groups:

snews://secnews.netscape.com:563/netscape.mozilla.user.win32
snews://secnews.netscape.com:563/netscape.mozilla.user.mac
snews://secnews.netscape.com:563/netscape.mozilla.user.unix
snews://secnews.netscape.com:563/netscape.mozilla.user.general

Any of these groups are appropriate for SeaMonkey questions.  the 
general group is for application specific questions, the others for 
questions relating to Mozilla/SeaMonkey on your specific platform.

In general, no, however, part of your question is indeed appropriate (I 
don't think Lee read through it all before posting his more substantive 
reply).

For bookmarks, you're better of posting to one of the groups in Lee's 
message. For email accounts, I've found the best way is simply to create 
parallel accounts under SeaMonkey Mail, close SeaMonkey (and TB, if 
that's running), and copy the mail folders from the TB profile to the SM 
profile. Theoretically, you could keep your mail in one place, and allow 
the folders to be accessed by both apps (assuming you want to continue 
using TB and not switch to SM completely), though this is generally not 
recommended for data integrity reasons. That said, both apps use the 
same structure for storing messages, and you could indeed save yourself 
the trouble of creating the accounts manually by some judicious copying 
and pasting from your TB prefs.js to your SM prefs.js - but again, this 
is not for the inexperienced.

{OT] Oh, and for bookmarks, the same theory applies: you may copy 
bookmarks.html from FF to SM, or simply edit the prefs.js of one or the 
other to look for bookmarks in the appropriate (shared) location: 
browser.bookmarks.file is the pref. [/OT]

Although in SeaMonkey you may of course simply use the File -> Open 
Bookmarks File option in the Bookmarks manager, it is not recommended to 
share bookmarks between SeaMonkey and Firefox, because the format is 
slightly different.

Firefox can deal with sharing SeaMonkey bookmarks.  SeaMonkey will have 
a problem with Live Bookmark entries in FF bookmarks.  If you are not 
using the RSS Live Bookmarks, sharing a bookmarks.html generated in 
Moz/SeaMonkey should be fine.

Help,
I click on these links and get a message that they are not found on this 
server. Obviously, there's something I don't understand. Can you help?

Thx

Try creating the newsgroups first, from Edit, Mail & Newsgroups 
Account Settings, and on the bottom right is the Add Acccount button. 
  Create the newsgroup, then when finished, look under server 
settings, and click on use SSL and make sure port is 563.

BTW: Those newsgroups are no longer being supported, there are NEW 
newsgroups that should be used.  Again, follow the steps above, but 
don't check the SSL and port is 119.  The groups are:

All other products
news://news.mozilla.org:119/mozilla.support.general

MOZILLA: The Mozilla Suite (Thunderbird and Firefox users, please 
subscribe there!)
news://news.mozilla.org:119/mozilla.support.mozilla-suite

The Seamonkey project (suite continuation)
news://news.mozilla.org:119/mozilla.support.seamonkey

FIREFOX: "Browser only" application.
news://news.mozilla.org:119/mozilla.support.firefox

THUNDERBIRD:  "eMail only" application.
news://news.mozilla.org:119/mozilla.support.thunderbird

Other Groups of Interest:
news://news.mozilla.org:119/mozilla.support.webtools
news://news.mozilla.org:119/mozilla.support.accessibility
news://news.mozilla.org:119/mozilla.support.bugzilla
news://news.mozilla.org:119/mozilla.support.calendar
news://news.mozilla.org:119/mozilla.support.camino

FOR TESTING THINGS:
To test anything on your eMailer or Browser (HTML stuff, graphics etc) 
use these Test groups
news://news.mozilla.org:119/mozilla.test

Only group which allows non-plaintext posting
news://news.mozilla.org:119/mozilla.test.multimedia

I doubt Firefox will share SeaMonkey bookmark groups either.

That's right, they aren't found on the server you're using.

You need to set up a new 'account' and name news.mozilla.org as the server.

Any date when these newsgroups will no longer be available?

A way to reorder the mail/news accounts in Mozilla Mail ?
I have many email accounts, mostly due to using temporary email addresses. Each listserv/news server I belong to could have its own account, and I use some more than others, so I would love to be able to just drag those to the top of the list. For instance, I have had this address for my news.mozilla.org nntp account for better than a year but never felt the need to post anything; since you are all doing such a wonderful job! ;-) Many thanks!

Every several months something corrupts the contents of the mozilla.support.seamonkey: record in the news.mozilla.com.rc file of my SM profile. All of a sudden, all of the unread articles in the newsgroup are marked as read. This happens in between news reading sessions. i.e. when I connect to the server the next time, the number of unread articles reported has dropped from whatever it was when I ended the previous reading session, down to only the number of new articles that have just arrived. If I open the .rc file with an editor, the record for the newsgroup has been modified to s...
