What is Happening?
This message is to inform you that Microsoft will soon begin discontinuing
newsgroups and transitioning users to Microsoft Dynamics Community forums.

As you may know, newsgroups have existed for many years now; however, the
traffic in the Microsoft newsgroups has been steadily decreasing for the
past several years while customers and participants are increasingly finding
solutions in the forums on other Microsoft properties and third party sites.
This move will unify the customer experience, centralize content, make it
easier for active contributors to retain their influence, mitigate
redundancies and make the content easier to find by customers and search
engines through improved indexing. Additionally, forums offer a better user
and spam management platform that will improve customer satisfaction by
encouraging a healthy discussion in a clean community space. To this end,
Microsoft will begin to progressively shift available resources to the
forums technology and discontinue support for newsgroups.

Which Newsgroups Are Affected by this Shutdown?
All public newsgroups will eventually be closed between June 1, 2010 and
October 10, 2010. Microsoft will be closing newsgroups in a phased
approach, starting with the least active newsgroups and moving eventually to
more active ones throughout the course of the next six months.

When will this Happen?
Effective the week of October 3rd, 2010 this newsgroup will be closed.

Where Should I go with the Closure of this Newsgroup?
In an effort to enhance and improve your experience, this newsgroup is
scheduled for closure in the upcoming week and we would like to invite you
to participate at
