I use to be able to see postings that were several weeks old or older
but now I can't even see a 3 day old posting. I don't remember changing

to help me resolve this.
Retention times are a function of your newsreader and your
usenet provider (eternal september, it appears). If you
blow away your newsreader caches and you still see only the
last day or two, then the problem is at eternal september and
you should contact them.
In Seamonkey under Edit/Mail & Newsgroup Account
Settings/news.giganews.com/synchronization & Storage there is a line
"Delete messages more than____ days old. I have this checked and 30
days in the blank. Sometimes gremlins make changes in settings like this.
