The following FAQs are based on common issues that arise when using the Macromedia Dreamweaver Newsgroup. The directions for possible solutions pertain to Outlook Express. If you have directions for another news reader you would like to see here, please use our handy form to submit it to us.

Q. I tried to post a reply to a message in the Macromedia Dreamweaver Newsgroup and it didn't work. Why did I get this error message?:

Outlook Express could not post your message. Subject 'Re: The Subject
you are replying to ', Account: 'forums.macromedia.com', Server: 'forums.macromedia.com', 
Protocol: NNTP, Server Response: '441 Article not posted -- more included 
text than new text', Port: 119, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 441, 
Error Number: 0x800CCCA9

A. When you replied to the message you included too much of the other person's message. To avoid this error, only include the parts of their message that make your reply relevant.

Q. When I'm using the Macromedia Dreamweaver Newsgroup, I can't see any replies to my earlier message. I'm not sure if I got any replies. Should I post my question again?

A. Please try the following first before posting your message again:

There may have been replies to your message that you do not see because you have not downloaded enough headers. If you are using Outlook Express, Tools» Get Next ### Headers.

By default Outlook Express will download 300 Headers. It is recommended that you change that number to 600 because this is a very active newsgroup. This adjustment can be made in Outlook Express by going to Tools » Options, and click the Read tab. Change it so that under News it reads Get 600 headers at a time.

If you would like to retrieve all headers unmark the box next to Get so that the number field is grayed out. Warning: there may be well over 12,000 headers on this newsgroup. Downloading them all may take several minutes.

To retrieve more Headers while you are visiting the newsgroup: Tools» Get next ### Headers or if your settings are to retrieve all Headers you will see: Tools» Get All Headers.

You can also search the Google archives of the newsgroup.
