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?
If you don't see how it can fail -
you haven't understood it properly.

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...
