MS newsgroups, web-based news reader, cookie and Java permissions

Post by a2FraW » Mon, 13 Mar 2006 03:49:26



To which newsgroup qualify best the questions regarding .NET passport,
using the web-based news reader, getting logged-in and -out ?

I have following problem.
The cookies and Java, Java Scripts are generally disabled in my browser.
If I wish some domain is allowed to set cookie / run Java,
I always have to create an exception rule.

What microsoft domains must to be allowed to set cookie / run java
I can without any problems log-in and out, submit new posts
to the microsoft newsgroups using web-based news reader (firefox as below) ?

Try using a newsreader instead of the web interface which is lousy. XP
comes with one, Outlook Express, or use any one of the other good free
and pay newsreaders. Here is a link for setting up OE to read

Thank you for your hints.

I do prefer the web-based reader.
What about the required cookie permissions ?
Why is this so difficult ?
