    I am from www.experts-exchange.com. I use QuickPost as my tool to see new
    questions and post answers immdly. Is there any tool available for Microsoft
    Newsgroup which can retreive question as soon as it is being posted on the
    web.

    Thanks

    This is a newsgroup not a forum. Any newsreader will work. Don't use the
    Micorosft web interface. It is very awkward. The server is msnews. The
    newsgroup is microsoft.public.windows.server.active_directory. It can also
    be found out most usenet servers.

  3. To add to the other reply - try using a newsreader like Outlook Express or
    Forte Agent rather than the web interface to the newsgroups - it's a lot
    easier to do nearly everything there, including searching, which is always a
    good idea to do before you post, as well as mark messages to be watched, and
    filter based on replies to your posts.

    The Microsoft public news server is msnews.microsoft.com and you can
    subscribe to as many groups as you like.

    For tips on using the web interface, should you prefer to use it, see

    Try Mozilla Thunderbird.

  5. If I remember correctly there are RSS feeds available from the communities
    web site. The communities web site also has the ability to update you (via
    e-mail) if your post is answered.

    Although, like the others, I use Outlook Express in almost all cases and
    communities when I don't have NNTP access.

    Yes, this works *very* well for reading text newsgroups! :)
