Opera Newsreader Problem
« on: April 26, 2008, 02:00 PM »
Recently my ISP had Usenet problems. When service resumed I found that two of my five subscribed newsgroups were no longer updating in Opera though I could get new posts using other newsreaders.  :tellme:

The only thing that the groups seem to have in common is that I did a 'catch up' on both in XNews before contact was restored  in Opera. I've tried unsubscribing one group, rebooting and resubscribing, but to no effect.  

Ideas, anyone?

The only thing I can suggest is to try enabling logging and see if the log shows anything clear:

Close Opera. Go to your Opera mail directory. Open accounts.ini in a text editor. Find the lines:

Incoming Log File=
Outgoing Log File=

And add a path/file name for the log files. Start Opera and try to connect. Which version of Opera are you using? As I haven't used Usenet for years I can't give you more help than that...
