    I am using Free Agent to access the newsgroups, and about a week ago, I lost the ability to get into the newsgroups. When I try to download new headers or to read a message, I get the message "480 Authorization Required". I have not been able to find any reference to this on the internet, so far. Does anyone have an idea on this problem. By the way, I have tried to get on the newsgroups using other computers using Outlook Express, and get the same message.

    sounds like your isp isnt letting you in.

    if you are POSITIVE you are entering the correct user id and password, you would need to contact them.
