    Well, I did it all--and still couldn't send through the E-S server. I'm
    getting this error message:
    Outlook Express could not post your message. Subject 'Re: internet posts
    with disguised email address?', Account: 'news.eternal-september.org',
    Server: 'news.eternal-september.org', Protocol: NNTP, Server Response: '441

    It worked, Bruce! But we seem to have acquired an organization name: A
    noiseless patient Spider. Where did that come from???

    Spider? news.eternal-september.org is the name of the server.

    I know, Bruce, but an organization name is showing up as part of the header
    when the post appears in either Microsoft's or E-S's newsreader. Here's what
    Properties | Details showed for the post you just sent:

    Thank you very much, Jean! I guess it's just coincidence that as I was
    trying to make newsgroup changes, the Corel server went down. Whew! That's a
    relief!

    If I understand, any posts that go through the E-S news server will acquire
    this organization name. If one posts through another server, it won't
    happen. Most importantly, it's harmless--right?

    Don't read too much into it. This is a good news server. FWIW, this is
    what your last posts headers look like in msnews.

    Yes, I noticed the huge number of references in the headers for the last few
    posts. What I figure is that if I post from Microsoft's server rather than
    from E-S's, a lot of this stuff, including the organization name, won't
    appear. So...here's my response from the Microsoft server rather than
    E-S's...

    Thank you, Jean! I tried again and was able to connect through Corel's
    server but not through Eternal-September's. I'll check into that.

    No. Any post through E-S by a client with an "Organization:" line set will
    retain that organization option. See my headers! ;)

    Both servers occasionally have some kind of trouble. Administrators usually
    get them back on line; sometimes takes more than a day. What can you expect
    for "free"?

    I'll save your response, Vanguard, for its valuable information! As you know
    now, of course, I signed up with Eternal-September and am receiving posts
    and posting as usual. I really didn't want to use Google but wasn't sure how
    to go about signing up with another NNTP server. I did have some problems,
    which Bruce solved; and now everything seems to be working OK.

    Thank you!

    Hi, Bruce,

    I was just looking at a new post at Eternal-September's newusers newsgroup
    and saw the following from Ray Banana about setting up an E-S account:
    "Please make sure you configure your newsreader to always use authentication
    (exact wording depends on your newsreader)."

    I assume he means Secure PW Authentication. Is there any reason to do what
    he says?

    Thank you!

    No, you don't use Secure PW Authentication. You just need to tick the "This
    server requires me to log on" option and enter the username and password for
    the E-S server. I've been using E-S for years (since before it became E-S)
    and that's all you need to do (I don't use it for the MS newsgroups, just
    for other groups I read and post in).

    The Secure authentication for NNTP is a proprietary Microsoft protocol (it's
    a variant of NTLM authentication which is specific to Microsoft services)
    and only works with a small number of NNTP servers, all of which I believe
    are run by Microsoft.
