I have a new windows 10 computer at work, and it won't let me subscribe
to any newsgroups. Thunderbird recognises aioe and gives a short list of
newsgroups, not including umra or any others I'm partial to, and doesn't
give the option to subscribe. My Thunderbird settings seem to be the
same as the ones I have here at home. Any thoughts?
I would suggest that the clue is in the fact that the computer is at
work. This is because I have recently and seamlessly converted to
Windows 10 on two new laptops and don't seem to be doing anything
different to what you're doing, with one possibly exception.
I go to Roaming, and copy the whole Thunderbird profile onto a memory
stick. I then take the stick to the other computer and put the
Thunderbird folder into Roaming there and it all works seamlessly.
This works really well for visits of 10 days or more but would be a PITA
to do daily at work, of course. But it all works perfectly, which is
why I think there may be some sort of something (apols for lack of
technical terms) at work.
