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.

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:

Re: Use OE/Win Mail Configures with a Click

Thank you. I'm now using OE6 on my laptop and Mail on my desktop. It
certainly is a lot easier. :)
