    Right click on the group and choose 'Catch up'.
    Right click again and choose 'Properties / Local file'.
    Press 'Delete' and then 'Compact'.

    ok. u need to make a "rule" for news group postings.. as follows:-

    tab extras>>postrules or something (excuse me for the inacurate transaltion
    but i am using the german version of windows)>>news>>new ruleand tick in the
    upper box "if older than" in the bottom box tick "delete" then in the very
    bottom box click on the blue highlited "string" and a new window will appear
    type in there whatever u desire and any posts older than what you typed in
    will be deleted... this rule stays in action until u change/delete it

    Click on that newsgroup, then hit delete. Then resubscribe and click on
    NEW MESSAGES ONLY. Resubscribe the same way you subscribed in the first
