Chapter 14. E-Mail > Newsgroups

Newsgroups

Usenet is a series of newsgroups, maintained on host computers, which act as electronic bulletin boards open to the public. There are thousands of newsgroups. Some are designated for specific regions or cities. Some are geared to specific pastimes and hobbies, and others are directed to specific fields of scientific inquiry.

To join a newsgroup and read the messages, you must first subscribe. After you subscribe, the newsgroup will be added to the list of subscribed newsgroups, and the messages will download into your e-mail program. You can then view and read the messages just like e-mail.
