The problem may be with your ISP's news server. You might want to subscribe to another news server for times like this. http://news.cis.dfn.de is a good free news server. CIS.DFN can be slow too though so you might want to try a free account at www.Teranews.com Some Usenet veterans might also suggest you get a "real" news reader. Personally I like Xnews. Gravity and Agent are also a couple of good news readers. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Bruce" <bdcbbq2@xxxxxxxxx> To: <24hoursupport@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Sunday, July 07, 2002 6:34 PM Subject: [24hoursupport] OE Not responding? > > Outlook Express doesn't seem to run very fast.
