Re: News servers

Hello

I am afraid that the Virginmedia news service is no longer offered and has been withdrawn.

Re: News servers

Hello Bandit1294

 

Thanks for taking the time to post in regards to Usenet  access issues.

 

As advised in the link provided by Graham_A we sent notification of the removal of this service via email back in May of this year. Apologies if these weren't received and for any inconvenience caused.

 

Rob

Re: News servers

I use the "eternal september" free news server. It works great for text groups - it wont be good for binaries etc though
