    Help - my newsgroup messages have vanished (OE 6)

    I subscribe to several newsgroups and recently, one of them went from tons
    of messages to only a few. I think I caused this to happen since a google
    search shows lots of messages in the group but my system doesn't display
    them.



    Is there a specific outlook express setting to ensure I see ALL the
    messages? I tried setting synchronize to all messages but that doesn't seem
    to help. In fact, I think my experimentation with synchronization may have
    caused this problem.

    Don, Have you tried to go to OE, tools,options,read, and there is a place to adjust the number of headers in the news group? I don't know about ALL, but you can set a large amount there. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Hi there, try TOOLS>OPTIONS>READ>takes you to the screen where News is located on the lower part of the screen, this gives the option to state the number of News headers and messages you want to download at a time. Check the settings and if you do make changes, don't forget to click on APPLY. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
