    I just tried to access "Discussions...outlookexpress.general" but the forum
    seems to have died. Any info on what happened?

    Where have you been the past few months?

    Microsoft is discontinuing newsgroups and transitioning users to Microsoft
    forums. All public newsgroups will eventually be closed between June 1, 2010
    and October 1, 2010. Microsoft will be closing newsgroups in a phased
    approach, starting with the least active newsgroups and moving eventually to
    more active ones throughout the course of the next six months.

    Microsoft Responds to the Evolution of Communities
    http://www.microsoft.com/communities/newsgroups/default.mspx

    Newsgroups removed as of June 1, 2010
    http://msmvps.com/blogs/bradley/archive/2010/06/05/closin-the-nntp.aspx

    You can still access the groups on some non-MS servers such as Eternal
    September, but how long the quality of questions and replies lasts is
    unknown.

    The replacement forums.
