    Default NNTP use of the forums: i can read but my posts get lost

    I have configured thunderbird to access forums via NNTP as is described here
    Server nntp.opensuse.org
    Email: fperal@no-mx.forums.microfocus.com
    I have susbscribed to some groups and I can read them, but when I post, the posts get losts.
    I guess It may be something about user/password .... I found strange thet the FAQ says nothing about identification because as it is described there anyone should be able to post using some other person account.

    Any help?

    regards

    Back in the old days (I'm an NNTP user) the account had to be your Novell account.

    Not sure how that translates today.

    and you have to configure the password anywhere?

    Hi
    Not needed... what about the log files from Thunderbird when you try
    to send a post?

    No authentication is used - you just need to use your username@no-
    mx.forums.microfocus.com as the e-mail address when you post.

    I think I did something bad. The posts appears in thunderbird with the
    user in the "from" so donig a "reply" only replies the user, not the
    newsgroup.
    Trying again. If this message is posted in the group is that it worked.

    regards

    OK, this was me. I configured nntp on another computer and for some
    reason I mixed the name in user@no-mx.forums.microfocus.com
    I see you can use anything and no authentication needed

    That worked. Yeah, Thunderbird is a little weird with reply - it tries
    to send an e-mail. Posting a follow-up replies to the group.
