    Thank you Malke (and you too Robear) for posting this. I guess this is the beginning of a
    FAQ that could also be Cross-Posted to; microsoft.public.security.virus

    It is too bad that newbies DON'T tend to read present posts prior to posting.

    Hi David .

    Most newbies use the web-based newsreader.( I also prefer the web-based :) )
    No matter , I mean that as soon as somebody registers for the web-based
    newsreader , it offers them to read something like "how to post in smart way"
    and "what to do before posting"(answer->to use the integrated MS search
    engine and to search before they post ).......however most just don't read
    them ... :)

    You "prefer" the CDO Front End ?

    Have you actually tried a News Client such as; Outlook Express, Thunderbird, Agent,
    MicroPlanet Gravity, etc ?

    There is so much control you have with a News Client and it is easy to search on various
    fields. Then there is the reading of headers factors.
