FAQ == Frequently Asked Questions
comma is about uucp, mail, and news for msdos or ms-windows or os2.
The comp.os.msdos.mail-news FAQ lists can be obtained via all
news.answers access methods:
quoting the news.answers FAQ:
Where are *.answers archived?
All of the *.answers newsgroups are archived in the periodic posting
archive on rtfm.mit.edu [188.8.131.52]. Postings are located in the
anonymous ftp directories /pub/usenet/alt.answers,
/pub/usenet/comp.answers, etc., and are archived by "Archive-name".
Other subdirectories of /pub/usenet contain periodic postings that may
not appear in *.answers (as well as most of the *.answers postings),
saved by Subject line rather than by Archive-name.
If you do not have anonymous ftp access, you can access the archives
by mail server as well. Send an E-mail message to
separate lines for more information.

Note that the charter of comp.os.msdos.mail-news _explicitly_ covers
mail, news, and uucp under msdos and compatibles, and used to cover
ms-windows and os2 until they got their own groups (although uucp
under ms-windows didn't, so it can stay). the FAQs still list
information for os2 users and ms-windows users.
