Chapter 25. Internet Newsgroups > Subscribing to Newsgroups

Subscribing to Newsgroups

If you find some newsgroups you'd like to read regularly, you can subscribe to them. This isn't the same as subscribing to a magazine; you don't receive anything automatically. And subscribing to a newsgroup doesn't add you to a list anywhere, as subscribing to an email mailing list does. Subscribing simply makes it easier to follow a newsgroup by adding its name to the Folders list (beneath the news server), as well as displaying its name in bold in the newsgroup list.

To subscribe to newsgroups

1.
Click the news server account in the Folders list.

2.
Optional: Filter the newsgroup list (as described on the previous page) to make it simpler to find the newsgroup to which you want to subscribe.

3.
Select a newsgroup in the right pane to which you want to subscribe.

4.
Click the Subscribe icon on the toolbar (Figure 25.9) or choose Edit > Subscribe. Or you can -click the newsgroup name and choose Subscribe from the pop-up menu that appears.

Figure 25.9. Click the Subscribe icon to subscribe to the selected newsgroup.


The newsgroup name is added to the Folders list beneath the news server and is displayed in bold in the newsgroup list.
