interface nsINNTPNewsgroupPost;
typedef long nsNewsAction;
* Represents specific attributes to a URL for news usage.
* Note that the urls represented by this interface can be one of five schemes:
* [s]news, nntp[s], or news-message. Any URI that is valid under RFC 5538 will
* be accepted. However, it is possible for some queries to be invalid. There
* are also a few important things to note:
* - Missing authorities in [s]news: URIs cause nsIMsgMailNewsUrl::server and
* nsIMsgMessageUrl::folder to be null.
* - nsIMsgMailNewsUrl::server and nsIMsgMessageUrl::folder will be null if the
* specified server does not actually exist. In addition, the folder is null
* if the group is not currently subscribed on that server.
* - Although news-message URIs are parsable, there is no protocol handler
* associated with this url. To run these, you should convert these to the
* corresponding [s]news or nntp URL, and set the original one in
* nsIMsgMessageUrl::uri and ::originalSpec.
* - A URI that results in an ActionUnknown will not be run.
* - Cancel URIs require the original spec to also be set, so it can find both
* the message ID and the group/key combination.
* * Some actions require either a group or a message id. Since actions can be
* set after the fact, these conditions are not verified.

* Most actions can be automatically determined from the URL spec as follows:
* 1. The query string is searched for the appropriate action.
* 2. A non-empty message ID or key is found (sets ActionFetchArticle).
* 3. A non-empty group is found (ActionGetNewNews or ActionListGroups).
