    I cannot search body content of nntp messages
    Is this is a client limitation ?

    maybe..

    but, also maybe a user knowledge/experience limitation...apparently
    you went Edit > Find > Search Messages ??? (which searches *for*
    messages, and not for text strings *inside* messages)

    if i wanted to search message text i would have instead typed a
    search string into that "Quick Filter" search box above the list of
    posts and then selected to filter by "Body" and not by "Sender",
    "Recipients" or "Subject" .... doing it that way turned up your
    question (among others which used the searched for word "limitation"
    in the search documented at http://susepaste.org/5875432..

    You seem to be using Thunderbird(http://susepaste.org/5875432) but I use
    SeaMonkey,(http://paste.opensuse.org/view/raw/89926730). Very sorry that
    I did not mention that my client is SeaMonkey. Both(Thunderbird and
    SeaMonkey ) use gecko and look *similar* but SeaMonkey is successor of
    Netscape suit.Things seem to be different in SeaMonkey.
    SeaMonkey doesn't download the messages by default and hence in "server
    only" mode I cannot search inside body but when I enable
    "download"(http://paste.opensuse.org/view/raw/80089337) of messages I
    can search (http://paste.opensuse.org/view/raw/46512158) inside
    messages. Guess this will in-turn *increase* my SeaMonkey profile
    *size* as I am downloading all the messages.

    i may be wrong but i think Seamonkey Mail and Mozilla Thunderbird
    share the same code and came from the same Netscape/Mozilla
    place.....additionally, Firefox and SeaMonkey Navigator are basically
    the same and both descended from Netscape Navigator..

    afaik Seamonkey is a suite of applications including Firefox and
    Thunderbird renamed along with an html editor, and an IRC client..


    > when I enable "download" of messages I can search inside messages.


    of course you can't search for text inside messages which are *only*
    on the distant nntp server (and not on your machine)...sorry, i
    didn't realize that was what you were trying to do..


    > Guess this will in-turn *increase* my SeaMonkey profile *size*


    but, text messages are miniscule in size... for example, the entire
    post i am replying to is about 2.5 kb (whats that, 1600 nntp post
    equals ONE MP3 music track of say 4 MB?)...so if you just decided to
    have one less movie on your hard drive you will have plenty of space
    for many *years* (maybe lifetimes) worth of nntp posts instead..

    I think it's more likely because I have

    mailnews.display.html_as 1

    and possibly some other settings are relevant.

    Currently it is not, true. To my knowledge it is not an issue for anyone
    here, and I hope it never will, and I also believe it will not be.

    I'm just speculating if it ever would be, and in that case PGP would not
    be feasible here, but that login/pass might.

    Just an speculation, ok? :-)


    On the other hand, as I said before, I personally suffered email
    impersonation in our mail list. One person sent emails passing as mine,
    and those emails insulted other people.
