Newsgroup Guidelines

The Tokyo PC Users Group Newsgroups (NG's) are a public forum provided for club members, guests, and site visitors to discuss issues, find help and resources on a variety of topics about computing and life in general.

The newsgroups are not moderated. We expect that the membership will not act boorish, and that as guest posters, you will also respect and use common if not gracious behavior. No foul language and no character assassinations, please. Keep your comments on topic and not personal. Should anyone be offended by a posting, you can bring it to the attention of the group at, however you cannot expect a personal response.

Your use of this public forum necessarily discloses your email address to all others who use the forum. Companies or others who collect email addresses can collect them from postings in the TPC NG's. This could result in you receiving unsolicited email. While the TPC does not condone this type of activity, neither can it prevent it from happening. Your understanding is appreciated.

TPC frowns on the use of aliases or bogus email addresses. If you're using one in the newsgroups, it's very likely that your comments will be ignored -- if you won't identify yourself, why would anyone listen to you?

Having trouble setting up Microsoft Outlook Express as a newsreader? Andrew Hayes and Ken Cotton have put together some screenshots showing how to configure it for the server.
