add new group

I sent a few test messages to the group, connected to 119 and was able to "group toplevel.newgroup",  see the group in a list, see my test messages in "listgroup toplevel.newgroup" and read messages w/ "article <msgid>".  I'll assume at this point the new grp is setup and functioning correctly.  

So this is a problem w/ my mail reader and not the server, so I'll close this thread.   Thanks a lot for the assistance and time.

Hm, okay, that looks fine.

Try telnet <news-server> nntp, and then once you've connected, send:

    GROUP <group-name>

where <group-name> is the name of the new group that you created.  What
