Dear All,

I would like to request your help in solving my problem. I just bought my laptop Sony VAIO. Just finish setting up and doing all the pertinent updates. Windows Vista Home Basic is bundled with it. So far I encountered no problem except when I tried to use windows live for reading newsgroups. Using it for mail doesn't seem to be a problem.

This error message comes up when I try to access any newsgroups:

Unable to connect to the server.

Configuration:

Account: Microsoft Communities
Server: msnews.microsoft.com
Protocol: NNTP
Port: 119
Secure(SSL):0
Code:800ccc0e

I hope somebody can help me solve this problem.

Thanks in advance!

Mhaye
