I have just downloaded thunderbird 3.0.2 and want to set it up to read newsgroups. My ISP is tiscalli.

I have entered the News server address, but I still cant download any newsgroups - has anyone managed to get this working?

Which country are you in and which configuration are you using at the moment? –  BloodPhilia Sep 1 '10 at 12:52

I had this setup working fine a few months back. news.tiscali.co.uk is the nntp server and it ran ok, albeit slowly. It's perhaps worth checking they haven't changed anything since they were bought out by Talk Talk.
