    Can someone pls help me understand how these newsgroups work?
    What I want to know is when I subscribe to a group that has, lets say 20,000
    messages. how do I view them all. I've set outlook to retrieve 1000 headers
    at a time but that could take years. And when I try and retrieve all the
    headers one click at a time, it look as if no new post are download after a
    certain amount?

    Leave the max headers setting empty (i.e. don't set a max)
    Right-click the newsgroup in the left-hand panel of Outlook Express, and find
    the button that says reset. This will delete all current messages and
    re-download ALL!
