I was toolin' around the Internet the other day, and it occurred to me that there are really a bunch of different places that the Access community gathers to share and communicate online that people might not be familiar with. I think the most frequented venue for Access communications continues to be the NNTP servers. Check these out with any News reader (windows mail/outlook express is a free client you may already have).
Note that in addition to these English groups, there are international groups as well (e.g. microsoft.public.fr.access).
In addition to those, here are some of the most frequented Access community sites where the Microsofties post from time to time:

There's some good stuff goes down at the AccessD forum (mailing list):

Allen is an Access MVP and frequent contributor to the newsgroup.
comp.databases.ms-access is my suggested best bet for Access programming information. I can search 10+ years worth of questions (google groups) in a few seconds. Most frustrating is the lack of upto date API documentation for many API calls (e.g., send a report to a RTF file has the undocumented limitation that Images cannot be sent directly to RTF). As a suggestion, replace the Access basic and API with a subset of the .NET framework and visual basic language. This could be beneficial for the Office line and anything that uses VBA.
