Chapter 6. Exchanging Messages and News > Subscribing to a Newsgroup

Subscribing to a Newsgroup

When you add a news server account, Outlook Express retrieves a list of newsgroups available on that server. Once you select a newsgroup, you can merely view its contents, or, if you expect to return to the newsgroup often, you can subscribe to it. Subscribing to a newsgroup places a link to the group in the Folders list, providing easy access to the newsgroup. If you find that you are no longer interested in a newsgroup, you can unsubscribe from it. You can also view a newsgroup without subscribing to see if you might want to add it to your Folders list.

Subscribe to a Newsgroup

Click the Tools menu, and then click Newsgroups.

Type the word or phrase for which you want to search. As you type, the results appear in the Newsgroup list.

Scroll through the list of available newsgroups.

Click the newsgroup you want to subscribe to.

Click Subscribe.

Click Go To to see the posted messages.
