    Issue #1 - Newsgroup View

    What I want:

    Only unread news messages
    Sorted according to subject
    Threaded
    Threads collapsed

    What I get:

    Most of above. Some groups behave as required, while others seem to
    loose my settings in the "View" menu.

    I set
    View > Sort by > Subject/Ascending/Threaded
    View > Messages > Unread
    View > Threads > Unread

    Then press "\" to collapse threads and all unread items disappear from
    screen. I need to move away from newsgroup and back again to make them
    visible.

    Issue #2 - Newsgroup folders information

    When I first log in to a news server, I get the expected result: the
    Newsgroup name is emboldened and the number of unread posts for that
    newsgroup is shown.

    While reading through newsgroups, this status information disappears
    from newsgroups lower down my list (although it returns when I click on
    the newsgroup name).


    Any advice about these two issues?

    Just wanted to point out that, when you set View | Threads to
    'Unread', the View | Messages setting goes automatically back to
    'All', because it doesn't apply any more: the view becomes
    threaded, as opposed to an unstructured list of messages. Apart
    from that, I couldn't reproduce your issues, sorry (but then
    again, I subscribe to only a few groups, all of them in the same
    server).
