    I can't get replies to nz.general to post. The error message is below.

    Outlook Express could not post your message. Subject 'Re: Fireworks.',
    Account: '', Server: '',
    Protocol: NNTP, Server Response: '441 220', Port: 563, Secure(SSL): Yes,
    Server Error: 441, Error Number: 0x800CCCA9

    What should I do please?
    Or is it time to get the computer man?

    I've tried restarting the computer.

    All is well. The posts went from the Outbox just now.
    So I didn't need to do anything.
    Perhaps something fixed itself overnight, though the computer was switched

    Hi Geo

    It wasn't a problem with your computer: it was a temporary problem with
    the Eternal-September news server that you (and I) are using.

    For some time starting on Monday evening (NZ time), anyone trying to
    post a message using Eternal-September got the same '441 220' error that
    you noted. The administrator at Eternal-September fixed it before 6 AM
    Tuesday (NZ time).

    Thank you. It's good to know it wasn't this computer, or something stupid I
    might have done :)

    Thank you. If I get the same message again in future I'll just wait and see
    what happens.

    Suggest checking the group There's often
    something there quite quickly if the problem is major ... even if it's only
    someone complaining, it indicates a problem larger than 1 person/computer.

    That's a good idea, thank you.

    I've just tried eternal-september support and a message about it is there.

    Yep, confirmed. I got it too and just waited it out. It's an excellent free
    service that rarely has problems - and when they do they tend to fix them
    quite quickly. ;-)
