Dear Paul,
I am a subscriber to:


Not all eternal-server account provide
usenext text only group access. They
have their native text-based group too,
in the form of
eternal-september.support and

I activated all the 4 accounts because
eternal-september provides four servers.

Thank you, I knew there was something
amiss. I have attached the screenshot.
I was led to believe that those
authentication information were
regarding the smtp (send) server. So
I filled up the user Id, checked 'ON'
the authentication information.

Thank you once again.

Freedom is impossible to perceive
