My mailbox is big enough for two weeks if necessary... ;-))
Since I subscribe to a number of lists I have the problem that I have
to read my e-mail frequently enough to prevent my mail box from
overflowing. Try going away for a week and I lose lots of messages.
With news groups they will be there when I return because
news.barkto.com keeps all messages going back several months.
I'll do that in time, thanks very much for you detailed answer, Randall!
I personally go to a number of vendor news servers (eg
forums.inprise.com, forums.sybase.com, news.software.ibm.com) and
find the quality of postings on many of them to be very good. You
ought to give the world of nntp news servers a second look. The news
servers run by a number of software vendors are very useful.

I'm not sure if they support that. They might. I'm not sure. Go over
to news.barkto.com and post a question about that in
homeless.xml.xsl-fo with a question about what you want to do in the
subject title. I know George is reading the group since it is new and
has hardly any traffic and he manages the server.
