Use Google Groups Advanced Search and look for your name. You can also
constrain the search to a time period and to a newsgroup.

You are having difficulties because you are accessing these newsgroups
from the web interface, which is clumsy and the worst way to do it.

Since you are using the web interface, you may not realize that this is
really a newsgroup. You will get far more out of this resource if you
learn to use a newsreader. There are many good newsreaders for Windows,
but you can use Outlook Express since you already have it. Here are
some links to information about newsgroups:
