    Same thing has happened to me; none of the posts I have made since November
    come up in "search for". I reported it to Microsoft several months ago, they
    said they would check into it and let me know when there was a solution.
    Weeks and weeks went by with no update, so I inquired again two weeks ago,
    and the response was that they were still checking into it. This is something
    they should be able to fix by the next day; obviously they have no intention
    of repairing it or they would have long ago. Don't hold your breath' you're
    in for a long wait.

    There are some filters in newsgroups that kill certain messages, even when
    they are completely harmless. It's happened to all of us. I do not think
    that Microsoft are going to fix it, seeing they are moving from newsgroups
    to browser-based community groups.

    FWIW - I can't get posts to XP general and Outlook Express to even appear.
    I have been unable to post a problem I'm having with jpg attachment to OE
    emails. Very frustrating. Don't know where to go else to go.

    I have posted the jpg thing 4 times on OE General, and none of them have
    appeared in that newsgroup. One did appear on the associated
    GoogleNewsgroup.OEGeneral I have X-posted twice to try and get a
    constructive suggestion on what to do. Interestingly, both these posts did
    appear.

    I still have the original problem.

    1a. "Missing" posts: There have been ongoing problems on Microsoft's end for
    almost a year now. Sometimes newsgroup posts appear, sometimes they don't.
    It's frustrating for all of us but there's nowt we can do about it. (This
    affects both the public and private MS newsgroups BTW.)

    If one or more of your posts never appear in your newsreader, use Google
    Groups as a fall-back. If you find a post there, it made it to the master
    newsserver but it may not have made it to the slave newsserver to which your
    newsreader's connected at the time. (There is a master newsserver and many
    slave newsservers. The "ongoing" problem concerns one or more of the slave
    newsservers not synchronizing with the master newsserver.)

    2. If you have an Outlook Express-specific question, begin *your own new
    thread* in OE General, not WinXP General, newsgroup. Even if a previous
    thread's subject looks like it pertains to your question or problem, never
    "hijack" someone else's thread.

    3. If you're referring to Outlook Express (OE), don't call it Outlook (OL)
    in your posts. OE & OL are not the same application.

    Note: I've found one (1) your "Problem with jpg attachments" posts (dated 01
    Mar-10) in Google Groups. I will reply to it via Google Groups and we'll
    see if my post shows up in our newsreaders.
