    How did you get in here? ; )

    It looks as if you are connecting to an NTTP news server,
    such as msnews.microsoft.com

    If you have a different server to connect to create a new news account
    which specifies that server's host name (or IP address) as the server name.
    Etc. (At least that's how you would do it on OE6. I don't use Vista
    so I'm only assuming that WM users can do it that way too.)

    Cross-posting to a more relevant newsgroup for you.

    Thanks for adding this group Robert, the following will help your user:

    Go here http://www.motzarella.org/ it is a free news server, but you have to
    register, and they send you the set up instructions by email so use a real
    address.
