It's never created until the first message is posted to the group. This

No. That's all you have to do. Chances are that your readers.conf isn't
actually allowing access even though you believe that it is. Can we see a

Also, be sure that you've refreshed your group list in the client. Some
don't pick up changes very quickly.

Please send questions to the list rather than mailing me directly.
<http://www.eyrie.org/~eagle/faqs/questions.html> explains why.
