I use Outlook Express to get to this newsgroup. Unfortunately, if I do not
open it every day, I can not retreive posts for the days on which I did not
access this newgroup, As a result, I lose answers to my own questions which
were answered on the following day. This does not happen with the Corel
Graphis newsgroups which I access. . Does anyone have anyone have any idea
on what is wrong and who I should contact to get the problem fixed? (AOL
does not allow me to access newsgroups directly from the Microsoft site.)

The answer is very simple (in fact, you have inadvertently answered your own
question). Ditch AOHELL and sign up with a proper ISP.

In the meantime, there's always Google Groups.

Go to Tools | Options, and on the Read tab, uncheck "Get xxxx
messages at a time."

Rather than using your ISP's newsserver for MS newsgroups,
use msnews.microsoft.com. This makes you independent from your ISP.

Outlook Express Tools, Options, Read tab allows to set the number of message
headers to down load. Outlook Express Tools, Get Next ... allows to download
additional headers.

I have no idea what AOL HELL limits places on Outlook Express. However, if
you are using Outlook Express as your post properties indicates, you appear
to be accessing the Microsoft news servers directly. So I do not understand
your problem. But, I also do not understand AOL or AOL users.

Thanks.
Can you recommend any "proper" ISP's? Actually, I like AOL since I can ask
questions on the spot even though 75% of the time the answer is nonsense.
They are also pretty good on blocking virus files, adware, and spam.

Well, you may say this but it seems to me that AOL is always the problem
ISP. When I used it years ago it conflicted with other software on my PC. It
seems to go out on a limb for no very good reason. Why do people use it?

The problem is too many posts. The servers carry a finite number of posts,
so new posts displace older posts all the time. Use Google Groups. They
archive posts going back to 1982. You should be able to find your post(s)
there.

And you can search for Miss Terspicacia Prick's abusive posts back as far as
you wish, including those under Amethyst, Black Allis, Magrat. She usually
uses names gleaned from third-rate juvenile fiction. She's overdue for a
name change.

Cassandra & Sarah J Balfour are a couple of other of Miss TP's aliases.
