OE6 - Unable To Reset List

Jul 1, 2010 at 8:02 PM
Running WinXP Pro SP3, OE6, version 38. I am unable to reset the newsgroup list in OE6. Everything else seems to work including Prefech newsgroup list. I get the following error message: Outlook Express was unable to retrieve a list of newsgroups available on the server "Microsoft NNTP Forums'. Configuration: Account: Microsoft NNTP Forums Server: Protocol: NNTP Port: 119 Secure(SSL): 0 Code: 800ccca2 Can anybody help? <Bill>

I am having the same problem with Forte Agent 5.0. Trying to download the complete list of groups gets nothing.

I had that problem if I right clicked on, then on newsgroups and tried to rest the list from the Newsgroups window. However, clicking on reset list instead of Newsgroups worked (I think that uses the prefetch in the NTTP bridge window).
