What am I doing wrong that I never receive any reply??

What do I have to do to get help from other newsgroup members?

Post your problem. If it makes sense, someone will answer. If it is a ploy
to get to the address book of my email system (like this has tried to do)
you are out of luck.

Can't speak for everyone, Stephan, but your two previous messages involve
doing things differently to the way I do them, so personally I have no
suggestions on how to achieve what you are trying to do.

Don't know if that is also the case for other n.g. posters.

It's that bit of spinach between your teeth, it's putting everybody
off (only kidding).

For me, I don't look at every post, I used to at one time but then
there were fewer posters here, I took less groups than I do nowadays
and I had more time on my hands but since you asked nicely I have gone
back and answered both of your questions (hopefully successfully).

Thanks to everybody who replied to my postings,

As my email account now after my last postings has been targeted for a
massive SPAM attack, this will be the last posting I do.
I wonder how all the other NG members can cope with all these SPAMs
that you receive after each NG posting. It certainly goes on my
nerves.
Hope that all these SPAMers enjoy what they are doing as they seem to
have big sexual or brain problems.

Well, stopping posting ain't gonna stop the spam, you get used to it,
learn to brush it off, it's a fact of life (although now illegal to do
it from the UK). There's 3 things you can be sure of once your address
goes onto just one usenet message:

1. You will get spam.
2. You will get spam.
3. You will get spam.

Less certain but likely are:

1. You will build up blocked senders and mail filters.
2. You will re-install windows and lose them all :-)

My main mail provider (easynet) filters most of the spam for me, last
count probably about 1200 a month.

Disable the e-mail address that is being spammed or virus-attacked. Get
another one and let your normal correspondents know the new one. Then don't
ever use that e-mail address in your newsgroup postings, or use it in a form
that it isn't easy for a spammer's software to "harvest".

That is, if you really feel the need to let someone contact you by e-mail,
you could take an address like jo********@somewhere.xyz and show it as
john dot smith take this out at somewhere take this out too dot xyz.

But, there's no real need to post your e-mail address in a newsgroup unless
you're looking for "pen pals". And, this isn't the place to do that -- see
the FAQ at http://www.mvps.org/access/netiquette.htm.
