Hi, it used to be really easy going to the web site and read/post questions
and answers.
I personally use OExpress to do my posting & reading. However, when I visit
my sister or go to the library and have to use another pc other than my own,
its been really confusing the way they changed their web site to read/post
stuff. I beleive one needs a net passport or one has to log in by
registrating. Well, I tried doing that from my own pc so that I can use the
passport when at another pc. I posted a question there and it did not show
up in my OE. ALso, I did not register with my real email address.I munged
it. Should I have used the real one??Does anyone know any tips about this.
thanks for your help.

Hi ... I believe sometimes certain post from the type you were trying to use
( web-based reader ) doesn't always appear with OE newsreader server , but I
believe OE newsreader does get most of them ... I don't think it matter
which email address you use for that type of newsgroup ... If you like to
use newsgroup for windows xp only , have a look at this website below... I
believe its the same one as you used at your sister or at the library , If
you just click on " Use web based reader " but if you just click on " Open
with newsreader " this type will load up your Outlook Express and add that
newsgroup to your list automatically ... Have a try ...
