Subscribing to a Newsgroup

Before you can read or post articles, you have to add a newsgroup or two to your news server account. You have two ways of doing this: You can subscribe to a newsgroup or you can open a newsgroup without committing to a subscription.

Either way, you must first display the group you want in the Newsgroup list. You can either scroll through the groups or type all or part of the newsgroup name in the Display Newsgroups Which Contain text box. Note that Windows Mail looks for group names that contain the text you type. If you type wine, for example, Windows Mail will match alt.food.wine, rec.crafts.winemaking, and so on. Figure 20.3 shows this example.
