Note: many news readers aren't set up
to automatically handle different servers. You may
have to manually change preferences to server news:msnews.microsoft.com and then
request group microsoft.public.works.win, etc...
Go to NewsReaders.com to learn more about newsgroups and to pick a [better] newsreader.
Google Groups (formerly Deja) does not archive microsoft.public.works.win. With a few exceptions, it is
either a private group or misspelled.
