Can't connect, 503 error item deleted

Jan 25, 2012 at 9:28 AM

For the last few days I have not been able to connect  to one particular group, and always get the following error message

unable to retrieve all the headers from the newsgroup 'Msdn.en-US.isvaba'

503 program fault - command not performed
System.ServiceModel, Version=, Culture=neutral,
PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089]]: This item has been deleted

I recall one thread in this group being "deleted" recenently and the subject line appearing with strikethrough. I guess I could delete all and start again but I'm reluctant to do that as it contains 16k messages and a few hundred carefully flagged. It would be difficult to redo.

Is there anything I can do to get past this error and connect?

TIA, Peter Thornton

Hi Peter… I think I need to adjust the code, so that I continue, even if I get this error message… But I need to check if this might have side-effects… I will do my best… I have already seen it in your logfiles…
