posting to newsgroups

Hi All,

Any idea why I cannot seem to post to a particular newgroup: the group is rec.audio.high-end. I can read other posts fine, and post replies to other groups no problems but when I try to post to this particular group, they seem to go to the big bit bucket in the sky.

Thanks, Mike

Some newgroups only accept post from the isp account so if you use +net newsgroups and post you should be ok. If you go onto another server then they may not let you post from +net.

Are you getting an error or do you post and then never see them?

It could be you are posting ok but as each ISP only keeps so many post due to the space you may not see them as they could expire due to loads of other posts.

Try posting and then getting new headers in a few mins

The PlusNet Usenet server is known to have problems.
You could try using Teranews server. A reasonable pay news server.

Their "free" service is one time setup of $3.95 and 50Mb/day download limit with unlimited posting

You realise the group in question is moderated so not all posts may appear?
