It isn't clear what your problem is. Newsgroups are part of the "usenet", 
and they do not send mail. When you subscribe to a newsgroup, it is just 
a way of "book keeping" in your own newsgroup reader program, that tells 
it you want to view the messages from only the subscribed groups (out of 
~20,000). If you are having problems with that, then you need to get help 
from your isp or your system administrator.

If you mean that you aren't getting messages from this mail list, then 
there may be other reasons. To subscribe to this list, you have to put 
subscribe in the "subject" line (whereas most mail lists have you put it 
in the text area.) It could be a system problem that you need to take up 
with your administrator.
