Peter (Potamus) .... what's your idea ? a problem at the news-server of my isp ?

sorry, but I don't know why the postings are still there. They should be removed if you click on that "remove messages".

The content of the .rc file is: 1-1210 1-21 1-272247
therefore this suggestion is not applicable.

As explained before clicking for an expired message in doesnot work

Sorry - noway the "expired messages are still present with the remove messages link.
This link doesnot clean the list

If a developper is interested by this case, i let this situation in this status for one week. After that i think that i will be able to remove those sticky messages by modifying the retention policy of this group.

Thanks Peter for helping me.
I just have an idea about a possible reason of the problem:
This is the only group where i have set tne retention policy to:
"Keep -All Messages" - Therefore it could be a SM problem.
