 The server that stores the messages is actually the news server you are reading from (as configured in your news reader tool, whether a browser or a dedicated program, or something else).
  All the news server actually collaborate to pass news amongst each other.  When you post something, your news server receives it.  It then passes it on to the news servers that it deals with, while uploading any other new messages posted, and also downloading any new messages from other servers not yet seen at your site.  And on the process continues, until the message is propagated all around the world.
  After a while, the message 'expires' and is deleted from a news server.  How long it takes for this to happen, depends on the settings for each server.  Your message may well be deleted from your news server, only to find it still exists on another news server that has a larger disk and longer expiry times.
