Hi, Spammy.

As you probably know but others may not...

These Microsoft public newsgroups are actually a part of Usenet, too, even
though they can also be accessed via a browser as Microsoft Communities.
For direct access to this newsgroup on the Microsoft public news server
(msnews.microsoft.com), which is free and does not require a logon, just
click here:
news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsoft.public.windows.live.mail.desktop

MANY other news servers "slurp" (or "mirror") the messages from here and
relay them - and any responses - back and forth. This is a valuable
service, but it can often result in messages that are delayed or out of
sequence or simply lost, so I prefer to connect directly to the "mother
ship".
