URL for referenced post

Mar 15, 2012 at 8:09 PM

I can't seem to find the right syntax to retrieve the post in the References: header. I could keep trying and getting it wrong, but it might be quicker just to ask here...

I read a post containing an apparent solution, but I'd like to see what the question was. I could visit the website, but I'd rather just call up the post referred to in Windows Live Mail - I have an extremely tenuous Internet connection. I'm used to using news://server/group/messageID but I can't find the right permutation when using either Community Bridge.

You can't get it this way, this is not supported. Read the documentation. This is not a newsserver and never will be. You only have access to the last 1000 threads (maximum) and only to the messages that the bridge already knows about. You can display metadata in the signature to get a quick link to the answers URL. There is no other way.
