I had that problem some time back, turned out that for some freak reason my
computer's date was wrong... .
Might be something to check.
I went through three days of frustration looking for the problem till I
figured it out.
I use OE too and am a non Earthlink subscriber
For those of you who are using a chat client, specifically Outlook
Express, to download newgroups, are you having problems receiving/
downloading new posts? I had to visit via Google since I'm no longer
able to receive new post. The funny thing is, there are other groups I
subscribe to which are receiving new posts while the Woodworking and a
few others are not. Therefore, I can't image it being a connection
problem. Anyone experiencing the same thing have a solution?
