Newsgroup Messages

Postby ntotrr » Wed Sep 08, 2004 10:19 am

I don't understand what I'm not doing correctly - I've set up an account for my newgroups and have subscribed to selected groups. I cannot see any messages. I can see them in Outlook Express but not in Barca - it indicates there are no messages which is not correct. Exactly how does one download a newsgroup post once one has subscribed to a newsgroup?

Can you post details of how you have set up the newsgroups (suitably sanitised if necessary) - it may be a simple setting that you have.

My settings are as follows:

Newsgroup account:

"General" tab:

Personal Information:
Name: My name
E-mail: My email address

Incoming Mail Settings (I have checked the box):
Server: news.optonline.net
Username: blank (not needed)
Password: blank (not neede)
Server Type: Newsgroups

"Check for new mail every five minutes" is checked


"Newsgroups" tab (no need to santize <g>):

Newsgroup Information:
Subscribed groups:
rec.auto.maker.chrysler
rec.photo.marketplace.digital
rec.photo.digital


"Incoming" tab:

Nothing is checked, using all default settings


"Outgoing" tab:

Nothing is checked, using all default settings


"Templates" tab:

Using all default settings


"Privacy" tab:

Using all default settings


Note that a log-in is not required to access newsgroups. Thanks for your help

I think that you need to press the Sync Index button at the bottom of the index pane :wink:

I never got the "check every x minutes" to work and I wonder if it is meant for NewsGroups... :?

I've tried that, to no avail. I'd really like to ditch Outlook and Outlook Express, once I get the newsgroup messages to download I can do that.

For the moment I'm at a loss for what to suggest because it works OK for me. I'll think about it some more...

This is strange...the symptoms that you mention are like not having a correct news server in the server box. I can get rec.photo.marketplace.digital through my local server, but not rec.auto.maker.chrysler, so the problem doesn't seem to lie with Barca entirely. If I try and use your news server then I get nothing.

Have you got the right name for the news server...my tests suggest that an incorrect server name will cause this, but Barca does not give an error if the news server does not exist ( :?: )

I've got the right news server - I couldn't subscribe to any newsgroups if I didn't. If the server is invalid then I couldn't download the list of groups, which I did. Hold on a minute - it now seems to be working. I'm doing nothing different and made no changes but it is working so I'll count my blessings. While I'm at it, I want to thank you for all of your very quick responses and your help.

The news server could have been down, so that would explain why it didn't work before, but now it does. :wink:

I know the news server wasn't down - I could download the messages with Outlook Express at the same moment I couldn't with Barca. It's working now so I won't look a gift horse in the mouth :D

Just setup a newsgroup, worked straight away..

Setup pretty much as you did, pressed sync in the newsgroup view and voila..
There are 10 types of people in this world: those who understand binary, and those who don't.
