    Hi all

    I cannot see a post that I have sent, other people can see it and have
    replied to it.

    The only way I can see the post is to do an edit > find and use the subject
    as the search, it pulls back the message and the thread. If I put a watch on
    the message, the folder goes but I still cant see the Posts.

    I have two News accounts set up news.btopenworld and news.individual.net.

    I have:
    Carried out a repair
    Removed all accounts.
    Reset all lists
    Checked that "All messages" is selected in views
    I have no rules/Killfiles set

    Outlook Express Winxp, All patches etc loaded

    Any ideas ?

    Outlook Express is a very broken newsreader and has not worked properly

    It's possible that your particular problem will be solved by the following:

    After you post a newsgroup message using Outlook Express, you may not be
    able to see your posting on the news server.

    This behavior can occur if you have enabled the Group Messages by
    Conversation option and there is another message with the same subject as
    your message on the server.

    To see your message, click Current View on the View menu, and click to clear
    the Group Messages by Conversation check box. Or, browse through the
    hierarchy of messages with the same subject line as your original message to
    find your message.

    However, this might also be due to one of several long-known faults caused
    by the improper way it accesses large "server-farm" NNTP services, and it's
    possible there is nothing you can do to correct it.

    If you can't fix it, complain.

    I had a similar experience yesterday/today whereby I could only find the
    thread by selecting 'Hide read messages', I marked it 'watched' but when
    changed back to 'Show all' I couldn't find it for the life of me, (sure I
    checked about five times).
    Sorry can't help much, though selecting 'Hide read messages' might help you.

    <snort> I wouldn't know... Island Internet is several hundred miles from
    here. :)

    (I'm on the Queen Charlotte Islands, 450 miles from their location in

    I do personally know the operators of their local server here, and they're
    neither dope-smokers or hippies.

    Moot anyhow: island.net doesn't do news... that's up to newsguy.com, whose
    peering arrangements may not be at all the same as those of your NNTP
    provider. :)
