    Hi everyone,

    I am using Outlook Express 6 (with all the latest service packs) to view and
    post to newsgroups. I posted a question on April 8, 2005. When I went to
    look for replies today 4/11/05, I noticed that messages from 8 AM April 8 to
    2:30 PM April 10 were missing from the display. I tried "catching up" but
    that just marked all the messages as "read". The only way I could get to the
    "missing messages" was to use OE6 from my other workstation.

    I know it is probably a simple matter, but how do I get those "missing
    messages" to re-appear on my original workstation... as if I had just logged
    on to the newsgroup for the first time? Say I want to review some messages
    that I read a week ago. What do I do to retrieve them, and why would there
    be an obvous "gap" in the displayed messages in the first place? Because I
    use the newsgroups for professional reasons, it's important for me to get
    the answer. Thanks for your help...

  2. Greetings John,

    Welcome to the joy that is Outlook Express Newsgroups :)

    If you reset the messages in the Tools, Options, Maintenance, Clean Up option and then
    re-download everything, you should have them.

    As well, this group is accessible via Google Groups (http://groups.google.com).
