I get tired of this.......I can't even read the responses that I got when I
asked this before. But since I subscribe to VIC for my e-mail and server, I
need to know who I can use for my newsgroup server that would be supported
thru Outlook Express. (yes, I still use Outlook Express, only because it's
working fine, it's doing what I want it to do most times and I'm familiar
with it) I don't mean to bother ya;ll with this question, but the German
based newsgroup service never contacted me and I can't access the
information I got about it. So please, if ya'll have a dependable newsreader
service out there you're viewing rec.gardens thru in it's entirety, meaning
running full posts and threads at least for the last year, let me know by
e-mailing me. I even tried X-news and there are some posts missing on THAT
one too!! Thanks ya'll

MG -- Are you willing to pay or are you only interested in a free service?
If the former, the best service available is Giganews. Their packages are
reasonable as well. They have a 3 day trial you can run through, see if
the service meets your needs, and after that you subscribe on a per-gigabyte
rate. The average text user will have no problem at the 1 gig level that
runs $7.95 a month. I've been pretty active on the newsgroups over the
years and 1 gig was always enough for my text stuff -- it wasn't until I
started downloading binaries of old time radio shows that I had to bump up
to a higher level. They also have a server that gives you an extra half gig
If you're interested, use the link below so I can get a referral. :-P
Oh no, Zhan, I still use Agent, but my news server is with Newsguy.
Extra Newsguy, as a matter of fact, although I think just plain
Newsguy has rec.gardens (yes, it does). Basic Newsguy is $39.95 a
year, and Extra Newsguy is $79.95 a year. Well worth it! see
http://extra.newsguy.com/overview.htm for more info. I am not
financially connected to them (other than the yearly fee), just a
