View Full Version : IE5 - Newsgroups. How do I auto deleted old posting headers.

You know the story, subscribe to Newgroups (headers only)and they are piling up. Now I want to get rid of postings 2mths or older.
Is there a switch I can select to do this? or do I do this manually.

Finally, when I subscribe to a new newsgroup, and synchronise that group, I often see that there are 8000 postings, but (thankfully) it only downloads 1400 or so. Why does it indicate 8000 postings, and can I select the number of messages it downloads a time, as per emails.

Thanks...John
