Okay folks, thanks for the replies
i) I discovered that news.demon.co.uk is *not* available to me (despite
demon being my ISP!)
ii) I tried freenews.netfront.net and after waiting a lot more than a
couple of minutes, I got a list of groups and subscribed to
linux.debian.users (I think that's the correct name from mem)
iii) However, today Evo is asking me for a valid email a/c on freenews
iv) It appears freenews.netfront.net is read only -- any suggestions for
(UK) nntp servers? I'm only really interested in a small subgroup of
available news groups, linux.debian.users being the main (and at the
moment only) one

Thanks, Michael
