    They have. They've discontinued it.
    And please quote the post you are replying to:

    The "forum" that you are posting in leaches off the Microsoft News servers
    in order to make it look far busier than it really is. Everyone who uses the
    MS News servers sees your post on it's own - we have NO IDEA to whom you are

    This is not your fault - the fault lies with the forum owners who do not
    explain to members that their posts end up on global Usenet newsgroups.
    If you MUST continue to post in this "forum" then please at least quote the
    post you are replying to, and do NOT change the subject line.

    You would be far better off however, using a news reader and subscribing to
    these news groups direct.

    Setting up Outlook Express/Windows Mail to access Microsoft newsgroups

    Accessing the MS newsgroups in Outlook Express/Windows Mail Newsreader

    Thank you
