Hi guys!
At first i'd like to say Hurrauaaa! about migrating
from stupidest Thunderbird (just my modern opinion) on
excellent (but little heavy from .NET) RSS Bandit! Yes!

Well here You are my problem.

My native language is Russian and i'm trying to read in
RSSB newsgrooup
nntp://ibexpert.info/interbase.ibexpert.ru which is in
win1251 coding system but can't :( It seems RSSB
understand just a UTF-8 or what?

Any suggestions would be very appreciable.

    The NNTP server at nntp://ibexpert.info provides also
    groups with various encoded posts (e.g. ru) to test with.

     
  • started working on a MIME decoder...

     
  • This Tracker item was closed automatically by the system. It was
    previously set to a Pending status, and the original submitter
    did not respond within 14 days (the time period specified by
    the administrator of this Tracker).

     
  • I did not know the system auto-close an issue if the state is pending. So now it is re-opened.

    i cannot add this newsgroup to rss bandit (or other newsgroup readers). it says that address is valid but there is no data.

    while looking at this i've tried to add newsgroup second time. duplicated newsgroup exception is not handled but user is prompted with standard .net exception dialog with details, continue and quit.
