MAY DAY - MAY DAY

Over the last few days I have had problems reading certain posts on
inn.qnx.com.

I am using MS Outlook Express 5.5 to read the news posts so this may not be
QSSL’s problem, but then again it might be.

I have identified a post this morning that exhibits the problem. In this
conference there is a post entitled “Network Trouble” by Hardware Support
Account datetime stamped 9/7/01 6:27 AM (I’m looking from Pacific Time).

When I try to display this post the first X lines show up and then in the
status bar on the bottom of that window it shows “Searching for
Hyperlinks…” or something like that and Outlook Express hangs. I have to
kill it and restart it. But even after a fresh boot if I try to look at
that same message it still hangs.

I am wondering if something in that message is not formatted properly. No
one needs to tell me that it’s a bug in Outlook Express. I already hate
MicroSlob but I have no choice for reading news groups.

Can anyone else look at the indicated message with Outlook Express 5.5 and
confirm or deny what I am seeing?

Like I say I have no doubt that it’s a bug in OE. But the bug is being
exhibited because of, I believe, something that is not formatted properly in
that message.

Bill,

I am running OE 5.0 and the same thing happens to me.

I had this happen for the first time yesterday when I was ready a post.
I don’t remember which one now. I thought it was something going on
in my system, so I rebooted.

I have no idea what this is, but you are NOT alone.

Yes… I was just about to post something myself. Outlook Distress is
definitely unhappy with this news group. I’ve had 5-6 lockups over the last
several days.

Yes, I’ve had this happen on at least half a dozen posts so far.

BTW, Glenn. I have found that you don’t need to reboot. You can
++. You will see a “Not Responding” on the window for the
message that you are trying to read. You can then “End Task” it twice and
reload OE.

So, can someone who knows what a newsgroup post message is really supposed
to look like look at this and see what’s wrong with them. I’m sure that the
“Searching for hyperlinks…” is going to be a major clue.

While we’re watching this, someone try to notice and confirm but I now think
that they are all coming from “Hardware Support Group”. What are you guys
using to post message?

Bill,
I am using OE 5.0.
When I checked that particular post from the “HSG”, I had no trouble viewing
it.
However, it appears that the “HSG” put the attachment into the text of the
post,
and in mine it’s all converted to ascii, I assume by our company’s firewall.

Maybe what your seeing trying to view is embedded binaries???

Bill,

I had the same problem on one of my postings, using Outlook Express 5.5 from
a Windows 95 machine. I used Outlook Express 5.0 from a Windows 98 machine
on the same message and it worked just fine.

Aha! Microslob has been innovating again! :sunglasses:

In the first message you mentioned, Bill, there are some uuencoded blocks at the
end which Netscape has no problem with. Would this have something to do with
it?

Is this something that is considerend a no-no?

What is the “Hardware Support Group” using to post messages? And does that
tool need to be fixed?

i use OE 5.50 under win2k sp1 and it works fine for me, nothing’s wrong with
displaying all six messages in “Network Troubles” thread.

// wbr

I just tried with Outlook Express 5.5 under Win98. The first message in the
thread shows up OK, including a bunch of file attachments. When I went to
the next message in the thread, it showed the first window of text, and then
froze.

I have other beefs about the Outlook Express news reader. Does anyone have
any suggestions for alternate news readers for MS Windoze land?
