I got exactly the same response from usenet admin people at Edinburgh. I
had to ask them 4 times before they finally were convinced that the
group existed and that people were posting to it. I think there must
have been with the sending of the 'newgroup' message. Ask your local
admin people to check, as other places are having/had the same problem.
