Yahoo carries a list of such servers or has links to lists of them. All ordered up - enter it in search.

Try send e-mail to news@<your provider> without subject. In message body write only 1 word: LIST
I hope you know <your provider> address.
Good luck.

I am not in South Africa. If I were, then I would not have asked the question. Note that I am looking for news servers and not newsgroup listing.Thank u all the same

The reason peaple are having trouble answering your question is becouse making a news server available is the responsability of your ISP (internet service providor), Yours most likely provides one... if it does not many Universities will aloow you to use theirs, if you have a news server but it does not carry South African groups (wich is irresponsable but common for cheap operations) call them and talk to them about it....  They will probably start to carry them for you...  If not, again check the universities...,  if you are just looking for south african news check the south african are of the african news webpage at

http://www.africanews.org/south/southafrica/

as you can see....  a direct question such as this is hard to answer... tell us more information

Here is a WWW based news server that can be accessed from anywear in the world....

http://www.provalue.net/usenet.htm

non members can read but not wright back... Members get a faster connection and can respond,  special groups are added by request (Most are already carried) 5$/month

If your happy with this, wright me back and I'll submit an answer... if not...  Be more specific

Keeban,

You can start finding a local ISP which carries out new server to it's users or a local educational intitution which they allow local access to their news servers. Yahoo and Altavista has a search engine just for ISP try finding one in your local area and get their email addresses and email them for further inqueries. They are very helpfull, I have the same problem here in Canada which other isp answer with great information regarding my questions.


regards,

jetx
