Lesson 25. Outlook and the Internet > Setting Up the Newsreader

Setting Up the Newsreader

You can access newsgroups from Outlook by starting the Outlook Express newsreader. First you must make sure that you are connected to the Internet through your corporate network or by your dial-up connection to your Internet service provider. After you've connected, take the following steps to start the Outlook Express Newsreader and download newsgroup postings:

  1. In the Outlook window, click the Go menu, and then click News. The Outlook Express Newsreader will open.

  2. The first time you use the Newsreader, it will run the Internet Connection Wizard, which leads you through the process of setting up your news server and creating a newsgroup account for yourself. The first screen asks you to type the name you will use when you post messages to your news server (see figure 25.1). After typing a name, click Next.

    Figure 25.1. The Internet Connection Wizard walks you through the steps of setting up your news server.

  3. The next screen asks you to provide your email address. Click Next after doing so.

  4. On the next screen, you must provide the name of your news server. This name should be provided to you by your network administrator or Internet service provider. Click Next after entering the server name (it will be something like http://news.company.com).

  5. The next screen asks you to type a friendly name for the new account. Type a name and then click Next. The last screen asks you to select the type of connection you will use to access the Internet: your phone line, Local Area Network, or a manual connection. Select the connection type, and then click Next. The last screen appears, letting you know you've completed the process. Click Finish.
