    Depends on what server you are on. Official Microsoft one - no.

    Microsoft is getting out of Usenet, and closing their news server, they
    may continue with their "private" news server (which is still on Usenet)
    but all news groups about Microsoft products are migrating to web based
    forums)

    Long ago, .... in my recollection, ... when I first started to post queries
    and answers in any MS Newsgroup, I could use 'real' my e-mail address and
    received answers to my queries not only this site/general view but also by
    my e-mail address. However, after about three years later, this practice
    completely ceased and needed to create 'fake' e-mail address.

    Then, in my guess, ... all MS Newsgroups have changed one after another, ...
    from 'real e-mail address' to 'fake one.' Now, all MS Newsgroups went to
    the web-site.

    For me, it's a sad change, ... but probably, the society including this site
    needed to change according to the people's reaction and general society.

    Hopefully, web-site is as good as this site.

    You can (always have been able to) use your real email address. It was
    *suggested* you use a fake email address - but you never 'needed' to.

    alt.windows7.general is the only one I know of. Not all Usenet servers
    carry it. Unfortunately, it's mostly been taken over by a clique of
    Windows/Linux advocacy fanatics.

    Thanks for all replies and to Mike for his link to the Win7 forum. Seems to
    be just what I'm looking for.

    You could filter out the clowns with a decent newsreader, there is a lot of
    good info there.

    I could, but there are occasions, when they aren't yelling at each other,
    they offer good advice and solutions. And, of course, I keep them around
    for a good laugh or two. ;-)
