Did you know Microsoft's Outlook Express can be used for reading and posting to Usenet Newsgroups? I am going to demonstrate how to configure Microsoft Outlook Express for Usenet Newsgroups Access. I am running Windows XP with Service Pack 2 installed.

Step One: After installing Outlook Express, you will see the welcome screen. At the top, there are some menu options, File, Edit, View, Tools, Message, and Help.

Choose Tools >> Accounts

Step Two: Click the News Tab at the top of the dialogue box.

Step Three: Click the "Add" button to add your news provider's information.

Step Four: Just follow the on-screen prompts for information.

Enter Your Name.

Step Five: Enter your email address. Remember that if you post replies, this email
address will be listed in the header of your post, choose an email address that you don't mind posting publicly.

Step Six: Enter your news client address (similar to news.anynewsserviceprovider.com),
make sure there is a checkbox next to
"My news server requires me to log on"

Step Seven: Enter the login information for your account (your account name and password).

Step Eight: Click the Finish button.

Step Nine: After clicking Finish, you will be presented with the summary of accounts box.

Click Close and you are ready to subscribe to Newsgroups. Jump ahead to the "How to Find a Newsgroup" section to learn how to subscribe to newsgroups.
