    Whoosh. Right over your head. So let's see what the thread mentioned:

    "Perhaps if someone knows of a free NNTP server ..."
    "You mean like my ISP ..."
    "Doesn't seem to be free (except for read-only access)"
    "Then how could I post using it?"

    You asked for an example of a free NNTP server. I mentioned mine. YOU
    claimed that it was read-only. I then noted that it obviously could not
    be read-only because I posted using it. So I told you a free NNTP
    server and also proved that it can be used for posting.

    Maybe you really didn't want an answer. Okay, do your own research.

    Thanks. That may be an option at the office especially since we use
    the public.vc groups for support.

    There is a beta of a community drive NNTP bridge that solves the issues
    you've raised - it connects to both Answers and Forums, has auto login, and
    adds the domain to the Message-ID.


    However, as the msnews newsgroup aren't replicated to either forum it
    doesn't cure that issue.

    This one works better but you need to make sure that it's running before trying to access
    the group. There's no connection that will start it automatically that I can see.
    Also, like you say, the microsoft.public.* groups aren't there.

    It's probably better than using the web interface to the groups if you're used
    to newsreaders though.
