As MS is closing the NewsGroups in favour of the "Forums", I'm wondering
in which Forum the users of WinMail might meet again in the future.

The process of killing the NGs is progressive. The majority of the
German groups does no longer exist and the rest is reduced day by day.
{siiigh}

I could not yet detect a forum which would fit for WinMail.
Does anybody know more than poor Me?

TIA
Rainald

Thanks for the reply, Gary!

IMHO this would be a rather crazy place. {siiigh}
How might John Doe make a guess to visit just this group/forum if he
does not find out how to activate his mail account??

Anyway, we can't help :-(
I'm really sad that MS does kill the NGs.
Thanks God that there at least is a way to access the forums with a
NewsReader *)

Thanks again
and kindest regards

MVP J. Kalmbach?
http://communitybridge.codeplex.com/
It's ways more versatile than the two beasts MS offers in "Connect"

You're very welcome.
At least the Windows Mail support responders can use the Community Bridge
available for download at http://communitybridge.codeplex.com .

The Windows Live Mail support responders will have it much worse. The
bridge does not work with the forums at http://www.windowslivehelp.com .
