It is still not working? This thread is from March, 18, 2007 and was
removed from MSNews NNTP servers in June, 2007. If you are serious about
getting help, please start your own new thread. Do not hijack an old and
defunct thread.

If you would like some custom help, right-click on your error message,
copy, then paste it into a reply here.
We can't do much troubleshooting without the complete error message.
