Highlight own messages

Jun 17, 2010 at 4:45 PM

when I use the bridge, my own messages are not highlighted from my reader (MesNews) so I cannot identify what threads I am involved.

I can imagine the reader recognize my own thread starting from the email address, but this is not included in the downloaded posts so the match is not possible.

I was wondering if the bridge can add the header with my own email address for the messages that match with my full name as exposed from the liveid.
I am not sure if this workaround would fix the problem, but that's my guess.

Which verson are you using? You should update to the latest version.

And then you only need to post *once* to any group and all subsequent articles will have your email address, which you have configured in your client.

Also be sure you have an *empty* "UserName" and "UserEmail" in the Advanced Settings!

I could finally did it.

There is a case where the email is not added:
* maybe if there are square brackets in the full name (in my case "Raffaele Rialdi [MVP]" )
* maybe because the email address is not well formed (in my case "" )

Now I forced the newsreader to use a different identity for localhost and now it works.

The UserName does not matter... but if the email address is not well-formed I will ignore it... Thanks for this comment!

Ah, now I see.
I always used only bad-formed email address on usenet. A human can fix it, but a bot can have some problem :)
