    D/L News Posts (OE6SP1)

    I just set up JPSoft (4DOS, email.sparklist.com) as one of my newsgroups...

    I told it to "synchronize" (download all to match server?)...

    It d/l 88 messages for the last 2 days... but there is a number (blue -- unread?) beside the group name showing 4196 posts...

    Since it apparently isn't "Synchronize" that you use, how do I get all the messages?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    Under OE | tools | read, halfway down is news, uncheck box for get xxxx headers at a time. This should d/l all messages in the newsgroup.

    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!

    Chuck,

    Clearing that box SHOULD have allowed all to be d/l.

    Have you cleared your d/l cache? ( temp internet folder)
    Have you tried to use other newsgroups in OE? to see if your prog is the limiting factor?( JPSoft )

    Bob:

    You were right... I'm not sure why, but I cleared the cache (didn't help by itself), deleted the newsgroup, made *sure* the "number of d/l messages" was cleared, and then re-set up the newsgroup...

    And got 5200 and some messages...

    Tnaks...
