Ok here It goes. Im trying to move some messages from a solaris based newsgroups server over to a windows 2000 server running exchange 5.5 I can ftp the messages over but they dont show up in the newsgroups that im subscribing to. Unless I open up the message with outlook and reply to it, then it shows up but i dont want to do that with 10000 messages can any one help me out here. I want to try and do a news feed but I dont know how to setup an active file that specifies what news groups to pull from and i cant find any thing usefull on the internet on it. If any one has expierence in migrating messages from one server to another please help me out. Thanks.
