  • If you have already registered for other connections on MS Connect, you can simply refresh your newsgroups list and you should see the the microsoft.connect.windows.server.sbs08 newsgroup in your reader.
  • The NNTP / News Server is connectnews.microsoft.com (betanews.microsoft.com will work as well)
  • If you have not setup a NNTP Newsgroup Account on MS Connect before do the following 2 things;

    1. Go to the following URL to setup your credentials; Set Newsgroup Password
    2. Go to the following URL for instructions on how to setup your reader; Configure NNTP Reader

Thanks for using our new Public Newsgroups hosted on MS Connect. We hope the registration process is acceptable. We chose to go with this new NNTP Server to help address issues with not having authentication on MSNews.Microsoft.com.
