I am trying to connect to the nexusdb newsgroup news://news.nexusdb.com.  I have used several other mail clients like mozilla and  entourage.  Each program says I am using an invalid newsgroup.  Can anyone assist me?

Have you been able to connect to that specific news server using other clients before?  I guess what I am asking is whether it is possible that there might be a problem on the server end.  It's rare, but sometimes I have found that I spend hours troubleshooting only to find out my client wasn't at fault.

I have connect to the news group using MS Outlook.  I can not connect with any other news reader.  I have been able to use Thunderbird to connect to other news groups like news.elevatesoft.com.
