I have been trying for days to configure Mozilla Thunderbird 0.5 and now
Outlook Express as my new reader, I am able to read postings, but I cannot
post any messages.
When I attempt to post a message I get the following error:
Outlook Express could not post your message.  Subject 'Verifying FreeBSD ISO
images', Account: '', Server: '', Protocol: NNTP,
Server Response: '440 Sorry, you're not allowed to post.', Port: 119,
Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 440, Error Number: 0x800CCCA9
I have officially requested joining the new group and confirmed my request,
they sent me back a password, but even though I have used my email address
with my password, nothing has changed, it still gives me the same error.
Can you please tell me what else I need to do to be able to post messages to
this news groups and others.
