Question 1.7:
How do I submit postings to a newsgroup?


For all newsgroups, both moderated and unmoderated, your news reader software should provide an interface to "post" an article to a group. This is the primary way of submitting postings. If the newsgroup is unmoderated, the article is submitted immediately; note that it will take up to a week to propagate through the network. If the newsgroup is moderated, the article will be Emailed to the moderation address on record for the group. Once the moderator approves the article (usually within 24 hours you will have an answer), the article is injected at the moderation site. Again, it can take a week to propagate through the entire network.

If you do not have a newsreader, you can visit to access a web-based newsreader.
