Writing a Rejoinder: Following Up a Message

Usenet is at its best when it's interactive: questions are asked and answered; the swords of conflicting opinions are crossed; debaters cut and parry to score points on contentious issues. The engine behind all this verbal jousting is, of course, the follow-up message. To post a follow-up with Outlook Express, follow these steps:

1.
Highlight the original message in the message list.

2.
Select Compose | Reply to Newsgroup. (You can also press Ctrl+G or click the Reply to Group toolbar button.) Outlook Express opens a message composition window and fills it with the text from the original article.

3.
Cut out any unnecessary text from the original article.

4.
Enter your own text in the article body.

5.
Select File | Send Message. (Alternatives for faster service: Alt+S or click the Post button.) Outlook Express displays a dialog box telling you that your message has been sent to the news server and that it may not appear immediately.

6.
Click OK.
