Morning, I am new to the newsgroup experience and I have one or two questions, firstly I am using Outlook Express 6, have port 119 open on the firewall and I have connected to a few newsgoups (public) but I appear to be having problems in replying to any of the newsgroups that I am currently subscribed to .. I know that normally you would go through an ISP and ask them for usernames and passwords to resolve this problem but I was wondering if anyone had managed to configure outlook express to get around this. The other question I have is ... does anyone know where I can find a list of public newsgroups that are freely accessable ? The search engine I was using was <A target="_blank" HREF=></A> .. anyone have any others ?
