    Microsoft Communities

    When I open Windows Mail and go to Microsoft Communities and cleck on one of
    the Newsgroups I wish to read I receive the following message. "Windows Mail
    is unable to use Microsoft Communities features at this time. Please try
    signing into Microsoft Communities again later." This has been going on for
    the past few days. I've changed nothing. Any one else receive this message?
    What am I doing wrong? I have changed nothing knowingly.

    Yes, I am and I am glad to know that it is not just me. It is rather
    annoying.

    same problem here too, jim ... however, despite the warning, i don't seem to
    have any functionality impeded, so i'm assuming it's a bogus alert. just one
    more little example of the extent to which our friends in redmond have their
    heads firmly planted up their poop chutes..........

    Of course. It was set up upon installation of Vista/Ult. As I said, I have
    made no changes in my acoounts since my initial installation of Vista. The
    other replies infer they haven't made changes either and this problem started
    occurring a few days ago. Perhaps the problem is in Microsoft's news servers.
