Default News service - announcement from Malcolm Muir

I hope I'm not breaking any rules by posting this here, but
I'm fairly sure many in uk.rec.gardening might not be aware.



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----

We are pleased to announce the upgrade of our Usenet news service.

This service has been outsourced to a specialist news provider
so we do not anticipate any problems with the upgrade, but
customers should note:

The new servers will be available for customer use from
16:00 BST on 6th November 2008.

Access to the old service will no longer be available after
that time.

The new service will use the same host name as the current
service - news.demon.co.uk and will authenticate by IP address
in the same manner as the previous service.

There is no synchronisation between the old and the new system.
The new system has been running for some time and will have
a significant history available.

The 'newnews' command is not supported.

Customers who collect news using the 'newnews' command will
need to reconfigure their news client to use one of the
alternative methods of collecting news.

Article numbering on the new service is different from the
current service. Customers who collect news via article number
must reset their news readers to receive articles from the new
server. Many news clients will have a command for this or will
correct for the change automatically. You may have to tell
some software that you've moved to a new news server (even though
it has the same name).

Initial connection to the new news server may take much longer
than usual as your client synchronises with the new article
spool.

Support issues should still be addressed to the Demon Helpdesk,
not the outsource provider.

The Demon Internet Suite (Turnpike, Turnpike Six) can collect news
either via 'newnews', the default, or by article number. You will
need to ensure you are collecting by article number with the new
server. Customers already using this method of collection should
automatically adjust to the change.

There is limited advice on dealing with the above available on our
web site:

For customers using Turnpike

http://www.demon.net/download/pdfs/demon_news_server_turnpike.pdf

For customers using Outlook Express

http://www.demon.net/download/pdfs/demon_news_server_outlook.pdf

Customers using other news clients should contact the supplier of
their client for advice.

We hope the replacement news service provides a useful enhancement
to your enjoyment of our service.

The message
from "R.A.Omond" contains these words:

The new service will use the same host name as the current
service - news.demon.co.uk and will authenticate by IP address
in the same manner as the previous service.


Well, that's that banjaxed then.

Both news and mail are working now. All my duplicates have arrived so
it looks like nothing has been lost.
