What is Happening?
This message is to inform you that Microsoft will soon begin discontinuing
newsgroups and transitioning users to Microsoft forums.

As you may know, newsgroups have existed for many years now; however, the
traffic in the Microsoft newsgroups has been steadily decreasing for the
past several years while customers and participants are increasingly finding
solutions in the forums on Microsoft properties and third party sites.  This
move will unify the customer experience, centralize content, make it easier
for active contributors to retain their influence, mitigate redundancies and
make the content easier to find by customers and search engines through
improved indexing.  Additionally, forums offer a better user and spam
management platform that will improve customer satisfaction by encouraging a
healthy discussion in a clean community space.  To this end, Microsoft will
begin to progressively shift available resources to the forums technology
and discontinue support for newsgroups.

In addition to offering a compelling online browser experience, for those
users who prefer to use an NNTP (newsgroup) reader to participate in the
newsgroups community, we have developed a solution called the NNTP Bridge
which allows a user to connect a variety of supported NNTP readers to the
forums they would like to participate in and continue having the NTTP reader
functionality.  You can find instructions on how to download and set up the
NNTP Bridge here: http://connect.microsoft.com/MicrosoftForums/

Which Newsgroups Are Affected by this Shutdown?
All public newsgroups will eventually be closed between June 1, 2010 and
October 1, 2010.  Microsoft will be closing newsgroups in a phased approach,
starting with the least active newsgroups and moving eventually to more
active ones throughout the course of the next six months.

When will this Happen?
Effective September 12, 2010 this newsgroup will be closed.

Where Should I go with the Closure of this Newsgroup?
In an effort to enhance and improve your experience, this newsgroup is scheduled for closure in the upcoming months and we would like to invite you to participate at http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/xmlandnetfx/threads forum(s).  An exact date will be posted in advance as plans are finalized. 

Should you want to visit the other Microsoft Forums, please go to

Who Should I Contact with any Questions?
Send any questions about the process, recommended forums and timing to

Outlook 2007, UTF-8 & national characters
After installing Outlook 2007 I found that in some of the mails I received the national characters like "�" or "�" have dropped out. It never happened with Windows Mail that I have used until now. When I checked the mails I found out that all of them used UTF-8 coding. If I change the encoding to something else and then back to UTF-8 the national characters appear in the message. When I close the message and open it again, the national characters disappear. I have tried to change the settings in Outlook but with no result. I plan to upgrade from Windows Vista ...

Integrating Great Plains 8.0 and CRM 1.2 and Windows Small Busines
Integrating Great Plains 8.0 and CRM 1.2 I run a Windows Small Business Server 2003 Premium box along with a Windows Server 2003 Standard box used for my Great Plains 8.0 and SQL 2000. I’m considering introducing CRM 1.2 Professional into the mix. From a hardware stand point I know I’m fine all around. I’ve been researching how I should configure CRM and am a bit confused.

Problems trying to replace Pegasus as the default e-mail program in IE 8
Running Pegasus 4.21c on XP Home, SP 3 w/ IE 8. Long ago, I had set Pegasus as the default e-mail program for IE, and it has worked fine for a long time, even through IE updates. Now, I need to set either Outlook or Windows Live Mail as the default mail program in IE 8. The options for these two appear when I go to Tools | Internet Options | Programs. But when I select either as the default, IE still tries to open Pegasus when I click on the 'Read Mail' icon. And it's not even trying to open it from the correct location.

Upgrade 6.0 to 8.0
Hi, We are going to upgrade 6.0 to 8.0 soon and move to a new server. We have GP 6.0 (with FRX) on SQLServer 7.0 and Windows NT 4.0 server. We have 8.0 CD, but do not have 7.5 CD. Can anyone help me steps for our upgrade? What I am thinking is on the old server: upgrade to Windows 2000, upgrade to SQL Server 2000, upgrade to GP 7.5, upgrade to GP 8.0 and FRX 6.7. New server has Windows 2003 and SQL Server 2000. Install GP 8.0 and FRX 6.7. Move GP databases from the old server to the new server. Are these steps correct? I have only a production server. -- Thank you, First of all, I ...
