NewsgroupDirect Announces 400 Days Retention Plan

Continuing to up the ante, NewsgroupDirect is happy to announce that we are now spooling to 400 days retention. We currently are at about 300 days, so in about 3 months or so we’ll hit our goal of 400 days. We have about 200 days of retention available in headers, with another hundred days or so available by message-id.

This is just another example of the team at NewsgroupDirect working tirelessly to provide you with the best usenet experience possible!

Retention Increased to 200 Days!

The NewsgroupDirect team is excited to announce that we are now at 200 days retention, and still growing. 200 days worth of retention is accessible through message id… so if you use nzb files or search using a newsreader with that capability then you’ll be able to fully utilize the retention. Retention through headers is about 175 days, and still growing daily. Thanks to all our customers for your continued support. We look forward to 2009 being the best year yet!
