News & Mail Servers?

Just been advised by AOL that Newsgroups access now requires external access. Downloaded Agent Newsreader but it requires, as a minimum, the inclusion of a News (NNTP) Server reference? Can you recommend a server reference so I can activate the newsreader? Thank you!

News (NNTP) Server reference

news.aol.com may work for the news server name or checkout http://www.aol.com/netfind/scoop/

Or contact AOL tech support. If for all the money you're paying them they can't get you up and running you might consider a different ISP.

Still searching!

Hi Caktus! Thanks for your input! The 'news.aol.com' didn't work and although the link provided gave me some direct access, it was relatively limited to what was previously available direct from the Aol ISP - (disappointing for me, but I suspect no surprise to you!) I haven't contacted Tech Support because they had defaulted to a pre-set message (when trying to access Aol 'Newsgroup' feature from a drop-down box on their site), promoting Mozilla Thunderbird for high-speed connections or Google for the rest. Guess I'll keep researching! Thanks again!
