Thank's Seymour,

I don't think I have a newsgroup from my ISP

but I have some free newsgroups I'm using

and most of them work well,

if you know of any free IBM related newsgroup's

I will happy to know about.


Thank's,

You can access IBM-MAIN three ways

   1. Via the web interface

   2. To your e-mail account

   3. Via the news group that it is gated to. If you use a news
      client to post to that group, subscribers to IBM-MAIN will
      not see your post. Also, "listserv.ua.edu"  is not a news
     server; use the server provided by your ISP, if any, or sign
     up with an outside news server. But I advise against this
     route for IBM-MAIN.

So if you're set to NOMAIL, I recommend that you either change that or use
the listserv web interface.

Thank's for the reply Seymour,

I don't quite understand what You meen in IMAP4 server.
but I have other newsgroup that are free, listed in TB
and they all work except the "listserv.ua.edu" newsgroup
also I've registered my google account in TB and it also works
the only problem is with this "listserv.ua.edu" newsgroup account!

maybe it's a problem with the configuration,
like port's, and security settings.

Subject: Having problem using LISTSERV.UA.EDU with thunderbird

Hello listserv users,

I'm having a bit of problem using
listserv with my mail client(thunderbird)

I've registerd to the listserv server using mail confirmation,
and subscribed to IBM-MAIN group, through the browser,
and made a password.

when I connect to the listserv server through the broswer
using ID and PW it connect's ok,

but when I'm using thunderbird,
I can't access the "listserv.ua.edu" server.
when I try to connect it writes "connection timed out".

I've serched in google for the answer,
but havn't found any realtive post.

Any help would be appreciated,

Thank's,
Yaniv R.
