    I forgot to mention. The site is searchable as well and the best part of it all is - IT IS FREE!

    Come back next week and tell us how many messages you are getting per day. I'll bet it's quite a few. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Nope,

    It's one per day max.

    Althoug, the biggest one I have received, and I have been subscribed since March, is:

    Sit down:

    142 KB of PLAIN TEXT!

    And that wasn't all of the notifications. Just the various Office products and SQL Server and the different flavours of windows.

    Essential E-mail Notification Service (Office XP)

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by charlotte on 24-Sep-02 20:37. Activated link)</P>I just came across what I think is an essential e-mail notification service that all techies should subscribe to. No, I don't get anything for sharing this info. I just thought it might be extremely helpful to everyone. The name of the site is http://www.kbalertz.com. This is a service that would send you an e-mail everytime there is a new MS knowledge base article that was just published. You can specify which topics you are interested in so you don't get articles that you don't care about. I hope you find this posting helpful.

    <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15> I've been getting the alerts for some time now. Just takes a few minutes to peruse the list and once in a while I find an article of interest or that I've been waiting for.

    Re: Essential E-mail Notification Service (Office XP)

    Carbonnb was right. You only get one per day which has all the articles pertaining to the specific topics you select. The length or size of the e-mail depends solely on how many new articles are published by Microsoft. Besides, it doesn't matter to me if I get more than one as long as they are not duplicates and if they were, I'd be more than willing to look the other way. These will be e-mails I will gladly go through to keep myself up to date with what's going. For a free service that helps me, I am more tolerant than usual and other subscribers should as well.

    Thanks, I should have visited the site to check it out. When you said they send you an e-mail for every new KB article, I took you way too literally. <img src=/S/doh.gif border=0 alt=doh width=15 height=15>
