Refreshing Metadata Delays

    We use the SYNCHRONIZE ALL option on the tool menu to update the messages in
    all our newsgroups. Unfortunately, when we select a newsgroup, regardless
    of the fact it has just been synchronized, we have to wait for the metadata
    to be refreshed. Depending on the newsgroup, this can be a long process
    that delays our interferes with our access to the messages (which
    continually keep changing and refreshing). This leads to two questions:

    FIRST, why isn't the metadata refreshed during the SYNCHRONIZE ALL

    SECOND, is there a way to force a metadata refresh for all newsgroups so
    they will be current as we enter each newsgroup?

    Thank you for any help with this issue.

    Have you tried a Synchronize All and then click on File and then
    Work Offline? That should disable refreshing the metadata.

    No, Robert, I had not tried that solution. Thank you for the
    recommendation. While this introduces a few more steps than I would desire
    to perform, it is also a very worthy work-around. My only concern, knowing
    nothing regarding the purpose of a metadata update, is whether or not this
    would rob my downloaded messages or headers of any crucial detail in offline

    Thank You

    It may interfere with downloading the bodies of messages for which you
    have downloaded only the headers in the Synchronize All. I haven't tried
    it enough to know if there are any more problems.
