    I posted here in December and January but when I used "search for" to find
    all of my posts, the December and January posts did not appear but the older
    posts did.

    Try using a newsreader instead of the clunky Web interface.

    Setting up Outlook Express to access Microsoft newsgroups:

    I did a quick search
    and found stuff from oct nov dec and jan

    guess your news server dropped them

    I always use a few different news-servers as the results vary

    All your posts are there, use a proper news reader to access these groups
    and you'll have a much better experience.

    Do yourself a BIG favour and ditch the horrible web interface. Use a news
    reader instead.

    90 days in MSNews. More than a year in the Web interface.

    I thought that the web interface was just that - an interface to this news
    group. So does the web interface store posts separately, on a separate
    server to the NNTP server?

    I guess it does. Occasionally I find someone replying to a post that is 1
    or 2 years old, and often upon checking their headers they show they are
    using the CDO for Windows 2000. AKA, the Web interface.

    What news server are you using? Your ISP's? Another one? If you set it up
    using msnews.microsoft.com as the first link describes, messages are
    retained on the server for 90 days.
