Just out of interest - what Hardware/Software does the news
server run on? It does seem to be a little problematic - not
that I use it anyway, but information is useful.

I've just spent three days setting up a two computer system
running XP/OfficeXP because the customer insisted that they
had to have the latest. Even they are now agreeing that
W98SE and OpenOffice would have been better <g>
