Search could not find something ???

Just trying to find subject names containing Koning in the newsgroup alt.binaries.dvd, without any success.
This seems to be very strange because I can download the files with subject Koning- "B.B.King.partxx.rar", by starting the related nzb-file.

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong ?

have you set your server as a search server? (under server options make sure the checkbox "use this server for server searches" (or something like what) is checked)
some servers have a shorter header retention than article retention, so you can't find the headers, but can still download the files from (e.g.) a nzb.

there are probably more possibilities, but i'm too braindead at the moment

Yes it is checked.

About short the shorter retention for headers than for articles: I did a Supersearch on B.B.King (category Others) and NL found the whole bunch of headers (!!).

Strange behaviour, perhaps you find an answer when you brains are living again ? :lol:
