   [Update 06/19/2006: the newsgroups below are now reflected on the SharePoint Community home page as well as the Microsoft Discussion Groups home page, so people who are just joining the community will be able to find and interact with the new newsgroups much more easily.]


   The process has taken much longer than I expected (and there are still some tasks to be done), but the new public newsgroups for SharePoint have finally been implemented on the NNTP servers. The new ones are:

  • microsoft.public.sharepoint.general
  • microsoft.public.sharepoint.setup_and_administration
  • microsoft.public.sharepoint.design_and_customization
  • microsoft.public.sharepoint.development_and_programming

    These newsgroups are already being actively monitored by SharePoint MVPs and a few Microsoft people. The newsgroups have been very carefully named so that they can effectively replace the existing English language SharePoint oriented newsgroups and significantly reduce cross-postings or misplaced postings. (There’s absolutely no impact to existing foreign language SharePoint oriented newsgroups.) Over the next few weeks, all of the applicable Web pages on, MSDN, TechNet, and OfficeOnline will be updated to link to these new newsgroups.
