Accessing Newsgroups from OE

Having successfully configured two PCs to access usenet.plus.net through Outlook Express not so long ago, I'm now puzzled as to why I cannot repeat the exercise.
After entering the account details and answering 'Yes' to download the list, it times-out everytime, saying the NNTP has not responded.
Account: usenet.plus.net
Server: usenet.plus.net

You are connected via your plus.net account?

You are using an account that provides the full usenet service?

I would have thought so. On one PC where I had access to it, I removed the usenet.plus.net account then re-added it. Before it worked, now it doesn't.
