CDOLive LLC The Premier Resource for Microsoft Collaboration Data Objects             

Newsgroups & Mailing lists

The following Newsgroups & Mailing lists are a good source for advanced developers who want to talk with other developers over the whole world. Try to post your questions in one of the listed forums to get valuable answers from developers, MVPs (Most Valuable Professionals) and sometimes Microsoft staff. But keep in mind that these resources are not an official support channel of Microsoft. If you have encountered a real bug in one of those products, you have to contact Microsoft Product Support Services (PSS). For more information about PSS, take a look at the Microsoft Support Web site.

If you are looking for a mailing list about a specific topic try to search CataList, the official catalog of LISTSERV lists.
