4. Server Information
This applies to both POP3 and SMTP. Username is the same one that you received with your service.
Feedback received on this FAQ entry:
The Server info (taken from Here:
* Uncensored primary server: corp.newsfeeds.com
* Uncensored secondary server: corp-news.newsfeeds.com (supports anonymous posting!)
* Uncensored extended-retention server:corp-goliath.newsfeeds.com
* Uncensored binaries only server: corp-binaries.newsfeeds.com
The retention seems to be about a week for the binaries.
Also, Wave allows two connections to news.wavecable.com. The retention is poor and the speed clocks in at around 32kB/s.
Astound (Wave Broadband) in California Newsgroup address differs:
Note: No login or userid. Authentication is by IP address, if you are on an astound cable, you're in.
Quite large selection of newsgroups. Overall message retention is weeks if not months. Similar for binaries.
Thank you jlconrod for this information!
Mail Outgoing (SMTP): mail.wavecable.com
Western WA DNS Servers:
Possible additional DNS from chpalmer
Username: same as e-mail (without the @wavecable.com)
Password: same as e-mail
As it stands, you need to call in to Wave (see the contact information for the phone number) to have them activate it. Details on whether or not all e-mail accounts get this or not have not surfaced (which means let me know if you know!)
