    These discussion groups

    Umm, Microsoft, please get these blasted forums fixed.

    We have multiple posts because we keep getting messages that there was an
    error sending our posts and we think we have to resubmit them when lo and
    behold, it DID go through the first time.

    This hardly inspires confidence in a new OS, browser, etc.

    Thank you.

    That will prevent seeing all the duplicated posts?

    Or Outlook Express on XP.
    Head on over to the following page at Microsoft's website on how to
    configure your newsreader to read Microsoft's Public Newsgroups:

    Yes. The web-based reader appears to give false posting failure messages
    and folks naturally submit again (and again and again, in some cases).

    It won't keep you from seeing them, but it will keep you from making them.
    Besides, it's faster and easier than that *#@! Web interface.

    Actually... The first few posts I made from Windows Mail was giving me that
    error. Now it seems fine so... *shrugs*

    Use OE/Win Mail Configures with a Click

    Ian, as Frank said, using the NNTP reader in Vista or XP from Outlook
    Express gives you a much faster interface with an increased number of
    features and options to download headers, syncronize new messages;
    syncronize all messages. The html web interface has always been
    paradoxically clunky and slow as a legless snail even though MSFT makes IE.

    One of the nice features of Win Mail in Vista is that it will configure the
    MSFT Public newsgroups--these--for you if you just click on Windows Help
    Groups on the left. If you happen to be on an XP box, and want to use the
    wizard to download groups see:
