How Get More News Headers?


J

jamesrudoy

When I click Tools - Get Next 300 Headers, the Outlook news reader
just shows me again the same text list of message descriptions. The
load bar at the bottom of the window implies that Outlook got a data
download from my news server. How do I get Outlook to show me a
different set of headers?

I have never found a definition for the word "header" in the context
of newsgroups. I think headers are those text entries in the upper
left pane of the Outlook news reader window which shows the subject,
sender, size and sent date of each post. If I am wrong about that, let
me know.

This newsgroup is for support of Outlook 97, 98, 2000, 2002, 2003 & 2007
from the Office
Family for PCs. For Outlook Express [OE] support try posting in one of
these newsgroups:
Microsoft.public.inetexplorer.ie4.outlookexpress for OE 4.x
Microsoft.public.windows.inetexplorer.ie5.outlookexpress for OE 5.x
Microsoft.public.windows.inetexplorer.ie55.outlookexpress for OE 5.5x
Microsoft.public.windows.inetexplorer.ie6_outlookexpress for OE 6.x
Microsoft.public.internet.mail.mac for the Macintosh version of OE

If those groups aren't carried on the news server that's carrying this
group
Try using msnews.microsoft.com. That's MS's public news server that's
the source
For all the Microsoft.public newsgroups.

Also a good source of Outlook Express info can be found here:

Not an Outlook issue. Outlook doesn't do newsgroups. Never has.
Probably never will. Go ask in a newsgroup pertaining to the newsreader
that you are really using.
