Not downloading newsgroup messages in WLM

    Hi,

    I set up my newsgroup reader in WLM with the email address
    sheana@microsoft.com. One of the moderators pointed out that if a real
    "Sheana" worked at Microsft, she might get replies to my questions and not be
    happy about it. So I changed to sheana@nospam.invalid. I subscribed and
    posted to internetexplorer.general, but the question is not downloading into
    WLM. In fact, no more news messages have downloaded since I first opened it
    up about 2 hours ago. Is there a way to reset and re-download the messages in
    WLM like you could in OE? Or am I dealing with a problem due to the email
    address I'm using. P.S. I found the posting on the web interface. Thanks in
    advance.

    Your post and a reply showed up here in WLM.
    Have you set the Synchronisation setting on the newsgroup?
    (Right-click the newsgroup and select Synchronisation settings) then click
    Sync on the toolbar...

    And this has what to do with Internet Explorer?

    I don't see wrong with your munged address. Tools | Options | Read.
    Uncheck: Get XX Headers at a time. Then, right click on the newsgroup in
    the folder tree | Properties | Local File | Reset.
