Live Mail newsgroup logon problems

by geebunker / November 15, 2011 2:04 AM PST

Just got a new laptop with Windows 7 so I installed Live Mail 2011. Created two e-mail accounts with no problems and they work fine.

I create a newsgroup account and when finished Live Mail attempts to download the list of groups my server hosts -- and the logon box opens every 20 seconds or so -- over and over and over again -- and the groups list never gets downloaded.

My mail and newsgroup server is hosted by my ISP -- same passwords. Settings for all accounts on the laptop are EXACTLY the same as the settings for all accounts on my WinXP desktop where everything - mail and newsgroups - work just fine.

Any tips, hints, ideas on how to get Live Mail to work with newsgroups are greatly appreciated.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
