See the attached posts. There is no question that MSN has pulled Netnews.
While it may work in some places The corporate line is that it is history.
Spoke to MSN today and I was told that Netnews was gone. They did however
say that they still were going to allow access to other news servers through
their service. Since you can get all of the groups that were carried on
Netnews, and more, it's really no big deal.
However, what is a big deal - Is the lack of communication by MSN, their
terrible customer service lack of any real on line information. I'm willing
to bet that Microsoft spins off this embarrassment. I must say that
Microsoft online support is very good as a whole if you don't consider MSN
which is terrible.
I've been a subscriber since they started the service but I am going
elsewhere. MSN just doesn't get it.
Try these groups from right in MSN Outlook Express. If you double click on
them they should set themselves up in your accounts area newsgroups
automatically. It worked for me. However, I'm still canceling MSN -Today -
