SYMPTOMS

When you are using Microsoft Internet News and you click Cancel on the File menu, your message may not be removed from some news servers.

The ability to cancel a message sent to a specific news server is dependent upon that news server's configuration. Many news servers are configured to ignore cancel requests.

MORE INFORMATION

Contact your Internet service provider (ISP) for information regarding specific news servers and your ISP's usenet message canceling policy.
