Reading the News

Once you have subscribed to a newsgroup, you will want to view its messages. Click the newsgroup to display messages, and then click the message you want to read. Newsgroup messages appear in the Preview pane, just as e-mail messages do. If a plus sign (+) appears to the left of a newsgroup message, then the message contains a conversation thread. A conversation thread consists of the original message on a particular topic along with any responses that include the original message. Icons appear next to the news messages to indicate whether a conversation thread is expanded or collapsed, and whether or not it has been read.

Open and Read News Messages

Click the newsgroup in the Folders list whose message you want to read.

Scroll through the list to see the posted messages.

Find the message you want to read using the following methods:

  • To display all the responses to a conversation thread, click the plus sign (+) to the left of a message.

  • To hide all the responses to a conversation thread, click the minus sign (-) to the left of a message.

  • To view only unread messages, click the View menu, point to Current View, and then click Hide Read Or Ignored Messages.

  • To sort the messages based on type, click the column button you want to sort by. The column button toggles between sorting the column in ascending and descending order.

To read a message, click its header in the message list.

Read the message in the Preview pane.
