Q. When I'm using the Macromedia

message. I'm not sure if I got any replies. Should I post my question
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 ###
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.
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.
