What do I have to do to get help from other newsgroup members?

Whenever I try to get help from the NG I never get results...

If I do something wrong, please tell me about it!

    • Post your problem. If it makes sense, someone will answer. If it is a ploy

      to get to the address book of my email system (like this has tried to do)

      you are out of luck.

    • Can't speak for everyone, Stephan, but your two previous messages involve

      doing things differently to the way I do them, so personally I have no

      suggestions on how to achieve what you are trying to do.

      Don't know if that is also the case for other n.g. posters.

      It's that bit of spinach between your teeth, it's putting everybody

      off (only kidding).

      For me, I don't look at every post, I used to at one time but then

      there were fewer posters here, I took less groups than I do nowadays

      and I had more time on my hands but since you asked nicely I have gone

      back and answered both of your questions (hopefully successfully).

      Well, stopping posting ain't gonna stop the spam, you get used to it,

      learn to brush it off, it's a fact of life (although now illegal to do

      it from the UK). There's 3 things you can be sure of once your address

      goes onto just one usenet message:

      1. You will get spam.

      2. You will get spam.

      3. You will get spam.

      Less certain but likely are:

      1. You will build up blocked senders and mail filters.

      2. You will re-install windows and lose them all :-)

      My main mail provider (easynet) filters most of the spam for me, last

      count probably about 1200 a month.

    • Disable the e-mail address that is being spammed or virus-attacked. Get

      another one and let your normal correspondents know the new one. Then don't

      ever use that e-mail address in your newsgroup postings, or use it in a form

      that it isn't easy for a spammer's software to "harvest".

      That is, if you really feel the need to let someone contact you by e-mail,

      you could take an address like john.smith.ms-access.todaysummary.com.somewhere.xyz and show it as

      john dot smith take this out at somewhere take this out too dot xyz.

      But, there's no real need to post your e-mail address in a newsgroup unless

      you're looking for "pen pals". And, this isn't the place to do that -- see

      the FAQ at http://www.mvps.org/access/netiquette.htm.
