I've been reading newsgroups for some time, but now they won't come up, and
I get
"Could not retrieve mail from the account "High-Speed Internet News"
and
"This server requires a username and password."

What do I need to do?
Thanks.

Call your ISP to verify that your setup is correct, or their server is down.
It is also possible that your newsgroup listing file is corrupt. If you
suspect it is corrupt, you can delete your subscriptions and setup to the
newsgroup, re-enter all your parameters, and then re-download the groups
file.

First enquire to your ISP, to see if your system is properly set up.
