Newsgroups problem in Evolution

Am using Ubuntu 6.06 and trying to use Evolution as a mail reader.

When I refresh the list of newsgroups, it lists everything alphabetically up to "Symantec" and then just spins its wheels and eventually stops. I can subscribe any of the groups listed, but the ones I want start with W so they are unavailable.

Very strange. Has anyone seen similar behaviour?

I had it working, then reformatted/repartitioned/reinstalled, and now it shows this problem, so I have no idea what could be different.

The news server is news.wp.shawcable.net.

You might try the other OS forum you are more likely to find someone who knows the OS better, Linux is a different kettle of fish application wise and help wise and people who are familiar with linux dont often check in here to much as its mostly windows based apps here.
