Usenet Use

Ok-have changed the news server address bak to usenet.plus.net-have refreshed the group list. I use Agent 1.91 on Win2K (with SP4).

Binaries posts (my main area of interest) are about 99% complete-have not noticed an increased in speed-have not checked retention.

1 problem: ABSU (Alt Binaries Sounds Utilities) is consistently empty, although it appears in the refreshed list, which would suggest that there is no feed to it.

Otherwise, it did take some time, but PN eventually got there. Thanks to the team.

Hi Bruno,

Thanks very much, the platform is looking good in terms of completion and retantion should be around 7 days (binaries) and 180 days (text) over time.

If you are seeing empty groups that are definately receiving posts on other news servers then raise a ticket with details and we will ensure that the group is accepting articles correctly.

I have been using beta for ages with my copy of Agent, so unfortunatly I can't try and recreate the problem you are seeing using agent.
