Chapter 6. Exchanging Messages and News > Posting a News Message

Posting a News Message

Part of the fun of newsgroups is that you can participate in an ongoing discussion, respond privately to a message's author, or start a new thread yourself by posting your own message on a topic of interest to you. If you post a message to a newsgroup and then change your mind, you can cancel the message. Keep in mind that if someone has already downloaded the message, canceling the message will not remove it from that person's computer.

Post a News Message

Click the newsgroup in the folder list to which you want to post a message.

Click the New Post button on the toolbar.

Type a subject for your message.

Type your message.

Click the Send button on the toolbar.

Click OK to confirm your message is being sent to the news server.
