    He might like to install the MS / Connect NNTP bridges for the Forums, and Answers.
    I did, so that I can continue to use OE6, and whilst the quality of most of the questions is, as usual, awful,
    there are answers to be found in there !

    I "glanced" at the "Community Forums" web site, before fighting with the
    Connect nntp bridges, (perhanced I should have glance harder and longer !),
    and thought it looked even more complicated than the "Connect" ones, ... who
    failed to mention anywhere, (well, I couldn't see it anywhere), that I had
    to make a News account in OE with local machine 127.0.0.1 server address, or
    it wouldn't work, ...then I noticed that it wouldn't work because the
    Answers Forum needed changing to port 120
    ....and of course, had to wade through all that MS "Live" stuff as well :-(

    The Community forums bridge uses port 119 for all of the forums, Answers,
    TechNet, etc. (2,284 forums in various languages). I much prefer using it to
    access all of them than use the separate bridges.
