I just tried to set my Email client
to connect the nntp server msnews.microsoft.com.
No success: permission denied.

please ignore my last posting.
Thunderbird is working with msnews.microsoft.com.
I did have log-in option checked.

Hi Rook.

your proposal is interesting. I have already tried my Thunderbird us
newsreader.
But I have still some problems causing I cann't reach I want.

For example, I am not able to load this thread. I subscribed to
windows.public. windowsxp.general. Tb is loading the threads. But from 11.03
only a few threads are visible. I habe a button "Get next X news messages",
but only the more and more old
messages are loaded. Unsubscribing und subscribing does not help.
Tb starts loading older and more older messages.

Furthermore, with the nntp I am not able to look all messages
for occurance of wished string. Only the loaded messages can I search trough.

A NNTP client is good. But web-based reader has several advantages missing
in the nntp client.

I disagree with your last statement. You have a configuration issue in
TB.
