can't read articles older than about 9 days - help!

I'm using a news server called aioe.org, and for some reason I can't read anything that is more than about 9 days old.
I realize that this isn't directly garden related, but it really affects my ability to read older gardening usenet articles in here.
Can anyone suggest another free usenet server that doesn't seem to get rid of messages until they are at least two weeks old? Sometimes I don't get on here all that often, so I'd like to be able to read articles several weeks back.
I'm using outlook express as my news reader, so if there is some setting in there that might affect this, please tell me!
Thanks

The message

Google groups does archive newsgroups free to anyone, but not in their entirety, and its very cumbersome and littered with spam trash. It's not a newsreader, which is what he wants
Good newsreaders provide a wide range of (automated) choices about how ngs are presented, (or eliminated) how long they are retained etc. Mine is zimacs, a free service from the isp I subscribe to (zetnet)

My provider is Snip.net which provides access to Usenet. But I perfer Supernews a paid subscription for 31734 + Groups. I use MT-Newswatcher which is Donation Ware this on a Mac.
Bill who thought the OP wanted to read some older posts. I do not know what Outlook Express does. I thought it was Mail.

I read all my newsgroups on Outlook Express.........I have it set to save messages for 90 days and you can also do a search from present back 5 years, this also depends on your settings and ISP's news server. on your OE window got to Tools Accounts.......click the news tab make sure it says news.'yourisp'.com, OK back to Tools.....click 'newsgroups' on the drop down menu and chose what you want to subscribe to.
It all depends on who your ISP uses for their news server and what their settings are so why don't you just call their tech support and they'll help you make sure all your settings are correct. Depending on ISP, newserver and connections, your mileage may vary.

Click Tools, then Options, and check the various tabs. See if you can spot the appropriate option. Exploring is a good way to learn. If you don't find the right thing, come back & tell us.
It's always possible that your news server discards messages older than 9 days, but that's pretty short.

If you're geting a message that says "no longer available," it's likely that it's been wiped from the server for some reason. You might contact them and ask how long the messages are retained.
