Sporadic news group connection problems

    85% of the time I get an error message, when attempting to view a newsgroup
    in O/E 6.

    Other times it connects to the server, but its slow, the hour glass is
    present longer than in the pass.

    The error is 800ccc0e................unable to connect to server. Would an
    overload at the server prevent me from connecting to the server.

    Has anyone else encountered this problem?

    Could O/E be corrupted, would a uninstall re-boot .........re-install reboot
    help?

    Running Windows Xp home.

    Thanks
    Tom

    Depends on what newsservice you use. Many local dialups offer news, but
    provide it poorly.
