9.4. Newsgroups

Newsgroups don't necessarily contain news; in fact, they're Internet bulletin boards collectively referred to as Usenet. There are well over 60,000 newsgroups on every conceivable topic: pop culture, computers, politics, and every other special (and very special) interest. More than 100 of them are just about the Macintosh. Fortunately, in addition to being an email and calendar program, Entourage is also a newsreader. You can use Entourage to read and reply to newsgroup messages almost exactly as though they were email messages.

Figure 9-19. If you've been using Entourage for email, the newsgroup portion should look familiar. It uses the same three-pane view: The Folder pane lists your newsgroups, the message pane (which you can display either at top or at the left as shown here), lists the messages in the selected newsgroup, and the Preview pane shows the text of the highlighted message.
