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.
