408 error on usenet posts.

Hey all in the last 2 days or so I've been getting a lot of these messages from usenet

"error while selecting group 480 authentication required"

Is this a teksavvy issue, a usenetserver issue or is it on my end? It's worked fine for the last couple of years.

thanks

Are you using the TekSavvy server as your newsgroup provider. I'm not sure whether this is valid or not, but as of Dec 11th TekSavvy Email now requires your username to be a full email address. i.e. bigdaddio5@teksavvy.com (or whatever your username is) and not just bigdaddio5. Maybe this change is also need for their newsgroups.

Hi - thanks for the response.

I did try to put in both my username and my username and pw and neither works. I get an authentication failed message.

Very frustrating. :/

Is this with the TekSavvy Newsgroups? If so & if you haven't done so yet please post in the »TekSavvy Direct forum. We can look into it and try to figure out what's going on.

Regards,
Martin
