Is it possible to save a question and the thread of answers from a
newsgroup.
If so how?

Well. I'm afraid it will have to wait. Whatever it was, I'm sure it was
better than my plan to get out of this by pretending to be mad. I mean, who
would have noticed another madman round here?

With Agent you have to do message-keep for every post.

Groups.google archives things forever.
AFAIK no one uses X-No-Archive yes on uk,d-i-y

method of accessing usenet. GG subscribers would be well advised get a
newsreader, say Agent, and a newsserver, say news.individual.net. These
will allow them: to see only *new* posts, a killfile, and other goodies.

I use News.individual.net, (Berlin free university) which is very good for
text newsgroups at only 10 Euro per year.

I see you are using Outlook Express as a news client.

In the folder pane on the left, right-click 'Local Folders', and create a
new local folder called something like 'Saved interesting posts' or
whatever.

Now, go to the newsgroup you want, and make sure the thread you want to save
is collapsed, not expanded up.

Now, simply drag the message into the 'Saved' folder.
So long as the thread was collapsed, all the sub-posts in the thread will be
copied there along with the top level post.

No way of locking then so they don't expire?

But on mine I simply highlight the thread title and export.
