So I got a lot of downloads lately that didn't indicate a password and wouldn't unRAR.
Turns out the password is INSIDE the NZB.
It's apparently a long common feature of NZB's but rarely used, until recently.

The NZB looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE nzb PUBLIC "-//newzBin//DTD NZB 1.1//EN" "">
<nzb xmlns="">
<meta type="password">in23ZLB2fr6sD96cH00VYT5mJZDvmMGG</meta>
<file poster="FRIENDS" date="1590578949" subject="[1/61] - &quot;S2AR3a1HQIFPuJJrQAd6A5fk2QYlcaqZ.7z.001&quot; yEnc 52428800 (1/37)">
<segment bytes="1479351" number="1">HbOzVlLpHzDdHdIeCvTyPdJq-1590578949315@nyuu</segment>
<segment bytes="1479075" number="2">PtHuTaRbKiMtXgEpPpWlPaYm-1590578949322@nyuu</segment>
<segment bytes="1479020" number="3">FbGjWcKrPlRxQoWzIoSoRkCu-1590578949331@nyuu</segment>
<segment bytes="1479177" number="4">IpFhQcJhByQhZwMfDeYxBoKi-1590578949346@nyuu</segment>
<segment bytes="1479143" number="5">ZoGeDsAuKgNjWhUvUkSmHbRr-1590578949358@nyuu</segment>
<segment bytes="1478995" number="6">JjXyUqHaDcJrQrYmByKhOwRu-1590578949364@nyuu</segment>
<segment bytes="1478933" number="7">JyKaZaKoHkQkKoAlJaAlXnEw-1590578949368@nyuu</segment>
<segment bytes="1479106" number="8">PiSsEuAbVaXrOpFkMsGuBiXm-1590578949373@nyuu</segment>
<segment bytes="1479137" number="9">AxAgHhAzFpCpQhJpOqMaUiUn-1590578949377@nyuu</segment>
<segment bytes="1479192" number="10">UmJaOlUuWdZpMuKkRvPbSfDu-1590578949406@nyuu</segment>
<segment bytes="1479173" number="11">FcHrFbUhGkYzGxMlFzVgPwXq-1590578949408@nyuu</segment>
<segment bytes="1478923" number="12">UiEmAgNhJmNsCaGpWrBpViBx-1590578949416@nyuu</segment>

The segments go on of course.
The password is on the 5th line.
SAB-NZB can read this and unRAR, but UE cannot.

So it's not only a feature request but if these things become more common it will be a flat out necessity!

It does explain other RAR's that were passworded and had to be thrown away...

The functionality is already there, just make sure you have "Import as collection" checked (it is checked by default) in edit menu->properties->search/import, import options, since the password is added to the collection name.
