can someone please help me out here. I posted a question to this group
titled " aluminum salt precipitating at ph 2.9" on 1/10. I know the post
was recieved because I saw it yesterday.

now when I read the group today my post is not there. in fact there are
only 6 new subjects showing for 1/10. How do some posts go missing and
not others? how many new subjects do others see for 1/10?

is there something wrong with my news server?

thanks
terry

It depends on your setup, would be my guess.

My newsreader stores pointers to recall where I am in which newsgroups. My
newsreader downloads copies of the messages to my hard drive, which are
then "retired" after a few weeks.

[Only registered users see links. ] keeps a pretty good record.

I see a single response to your post yesterday. Did you see it?

Before you do that, you may try unsubscribing, then resubscribing to this
newsgroup. If your message reappears, then your news server is OK. Do the
unsubscription bit, after you've just seen the current posts, that way you
won't miss much if you "mark all read".

Are you using MS Outlook Express. If so, click "options" then "maintenance".
There is an option to set the number of days after which downloaded
newsgroup messages are removed. If set to 1 day, you will not see
yesterday's messages. Increase the value to say 7 or 14 days.
Other software probably has similar options, but you will have to search for
them yourself if you do not use Outlook Express.

I can see your post even now. Think that some newsreader providers choose to
delete old mesages in some days, but the older mesages continue to be in
your computer. Unfortunately some other news providers choose to send a
command and reset your newsreader, deleting old messages (I mean even in
your computer). In the second case ask isp provider to remove this command.
